Miami Beach Open House
The City of Miami Beach is investing in the revitalization of its commercial corridors with an experiential cultural artist residency within vacant spaces. The “Miami Beach Open House” program aims to activate empty spaces in Miami Beach commercial districts while at the same time supporting the revitalization of the arts community. Privately owned vacant spaces will serve as free workspaces, studios, exhibition space and communal areas that encourage dialogue and collaboration.
The residency program will provide free space and financial support to qualifying artists and nonprofit cultural organizations. A stipend of $2,500 will accompany each occupancy. Artists will be encouraged to sell their works, build networks, collaborate with Miami Beach institutions and exhibit their creations. Through this project, property owners will bring innovative cultural business to Miami Beach by creating a place for cultural tourism.
Artists and cultural organizations may submit applications of interest beginning today through Friday, November 13, 2020 by clicking here. Property owners with vacant spaces who wish to participate in the program should contact Rickelle Williams, director of the city’s economic development department at 305.673.7572 or via email at
