Higher Learning

After each fold of your brain is in use and your thirst for knowledge has been quenched, we’ll sit back and listen to you. Till then, take cues from the University of Wynwood, a collective created by our very own assistant calendar editor P. Scott Cunningham on the premise that higher learning doesn’t stop once you’re too old to do a keg stand. The project’s inaugural lecture series, titled “In All Likelihood, These Dreams Will Be Crushed: Ambitious Cultural Projects from Young Miamians” continues with the founders of Miami World Cinema Center (MWCC): Sam Rega, Josh Miller, and Patrick de Bokay.

The three men will tell how they’ve banded together to form MWCC, the city’s first nonprofit dedicated solely to growing our burgeoning independent film industry. Their idea won a $750,000 arts grant from the Knight Foundation, and this Saturday night at the Brikolodge Coworking Office, they’ll speak publicly for the first time about MWCC’s plans. The event dovetails with Wynwood’s second-Saturday art walk, so of course free wine will flow for those over 21. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the lecture begins at 6:30. It’s free! Visit to universityofwynwood.com for directions and more information.
