Our focus is on the new – art of our time that reflects current directions and thinking. Tigertail fosters the creative explorations of artists and audiences. This 2010/2011 season includes presentations and exchanges with artists from Curaçao, Germany, Japan, Netherlands and the U.S. Tigertail Youth Projects – Wordspeak and SpeakOut Tigertail youth programs engage, educate and enrich youth. We see the use of art as a positive change agent for youth and a catalyst in community revitalization. Tigertail is currently involved in after school spoken word projects, WordSpeak and SpeakOut, for 1000 teens primarily from the inner city neighborhoods. danceAble danceAble is a nationally significant dance project produced by Tigertail and Florida Dance Association and other partners that provides access to dance as a performing art form, broadens the definition of dance and expands the understanding of who can create and perform and provides opportunities for persons with disabilities in our community. danceAble is the only annual event in the U.S. of its kind. danceAble helps to strengthen the body and challenges old notions of who should have access to the world stage. Performances by internationally renowned companies and area choreographers and events for our own able and physically challenged dancers take place throughout the year and within the Florida Dance Festival. Artist Access Artist Access is a Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs professional development program administered by Tigertail. Artist Access provides mini-grants to working individual artists to specifically take advantage of specific professional development, skill building opportunities to advance their work and careers. To date, Tigertail has given out 216 awards to Miami-Dade artists of all media. Tigertail, A South Florida Poetry Annual Tigertail produces and publishes Tigertail, A South Florida Poetry Annual. This unique, 72-page book of poems is now in its 8th edition. Tigertail, A South Florida Poetry Annual addresses the need to document new poetry through an annual publication. It features poets of excellence writing in our community and beyond. Tigertail is edited each year by a different guest editor – an important literary figure who is invited to create a distinctive edition by choosing poetry that echoes his or her own personal enthusiasms and concerns. Educational Programs All Tigertail projects have educational residency and community components. Each time we bring an artist to Miami they engage with the Miami-Dade community through workshops at area colleges and universities, through special receptions for artists and audiences, through special events with targeted communities and through post-concert discussions.
