Description


Subtropical Experiments
blend south Florida stories, science and jazz for a creative approach to how we understand and can affect our local landscape.

This is a collaborative project among WDNA Public Radio, scientists from University of Miami and Florida International University, Miami musicians, artists, and community organizations.

Each experiment kicks off with a "story," a narrative, audio or visual performance. Then our scientists ground these narratives in scientific understanding. Next, community groups share how we can get involved. Last, musicians interpret what we've learned into music.

And! Everyone 21+ receives one complimentary beer with your RSVP, thanks to our sweet friends at Concrete Beach Brewery!

Subtropical Experiments take place the third Saturday of the month at 2pm, June through September, 2019 in the WDNA Jazz Gallery - 2921 Coral Way, Miami 33145.

RSVP for FREE admission + a complimentary beer.

Just as in science and art, to impact the world around us, we have to be willing to collaborate, experiment and improvise.

It's a Subtropical Experiment!
