#Project305—a  community-sourced symphony created for Miamians, by Miamians—is  92 days into its 100-day submission period.

With more than 930 entries, the project is on track to meet its original goal of 1,000 submissions for a final symphonic and video piece that will be produced by local filmmaker Jonathan David Kane and composer Ted Hearne.

The completed piece will represent Miami from a variety of perspectives, as captured by its residents, and will debut as a New World Symphony WALLCAST™ concert on October 21, 2017.

“This really is an opportunity for Miamians to share their stories with us—we want to know where you came from, why you’re here, what you hope to see change in this city…we’re looking for in-depth accounts of what life is like in Miami,” said Kane. 

The project, a collaboration between Knight Foundation, New World Symphony and MIT Media Lab, has been met with enthusiasm from community partners and individuals alike who have sent in clips of people dancing on Calle Ocho in Little Havana, quiet moments from  solitary walks along the beach and so. much. traffic.

To meet community demand and provide even more Miamians with opportunities to submit sights and sounds of their city: We’re extending the #Project305 deadline by an additional week to May 19!
