The battle to save the liveability of Miami-Dade County continues tonight.
If you haven't heard, the Mayor's office has proposed $11 million in cuts to the county's arts programming budget, which would put roughly 400 arts organizations out of business.
Miami Today reported that the idea of a dedicated funding stream for arts programming--an idea floated at the Miami Science Museum meeting on August 3rd--is currently illegal, so our best shot at retaining funding remains showing up to these budget hearings.
