The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation aims to develop South Florida as a world-class urban center. A thriving arts community is essential to making Greater Miami a vibrant, connected and culturally engaging place to live. The Pérez CreARTE Grant Program will invest over $1 million in Miami-Dade organizations working to cultivate this ecosystem through expanding residents’ access to the arts and making our city a global hub for artistic excellence.
The Foundation believes that effective arts education can inspire creative development in local youth, drive a lifelong interest in and appreciation for the arts, and build audiences for the future. The Foundation seeks to expand arts access for Miami-Dade County students at every level, from introductory programs to professional training.
The Foundation also recognizes that the creative community needs affordable spaces to work, living wages, and tools to develop their craft and pursue new projects and opportunities. The Foundation seeks to support top artistic talent in (and attract artists to) Miami by creating local fellowship and residency programs and supporting spaces for creation.
