The 2nd Annual Art Beat Festival Brings Basel Atmosphere to Downtown Little Haiti

In its second year, Art Beat Miami is the highly anticipated satellite show presented by Northeast Second Avenue Partnership (NE2P) showcasing emerging and renowned artists from Haiti and around the world. 

Nestled in the heart of Downtown Little Haiti, Art Beat Miami will feature emerging and renowned artists, painters, craftspeople, sculptors, art exhibits, murals, performers, musicians, DJs and Haitian folklore dances. The festival brings together multidisciplinary artists working in collaboration to highlight the culturally rich and diverse creativity of local artists and the Caribbean Diaspora here and beyond.
 
For six days, the Little Haiti’s art community will converge for a one-of-a-kind experience celebrating the artistic expression, music, and food inspired by the rich culture of Haiti during Miami Art Week.
