Great turnout for 2nd annual PhilanthroFest

Had a great time at PhilanthroFest on Saturday. The event held downtown at the Wolfson Campus downtown. All sorts of charities had tables and booth set up and it was a share event, where they shared themselves with the visitors. People learned about the different organizations and it really makes Miami a better place. Above, Josh Kingston, of Coconut Grove, plants a sign.

Here's Alice Billman, artistic director of Mobile Micro Theater. This is really cool. There is  production going on in the bus right behind Alice. They take theater to the people, literally! I think this would be a great thing for the Grove. Maybe on Gallery Walk night or something, the bus can be parked somewhere, and the shows could be going on all night inside. They have a show every 15 minutes, the cost is $5 per show. 

Another Grovite was at Philanthrofest. Victoria Edwards, with her friend Monica Welch.

Drag it OUT had a booth there, they are a commUNITY with a radical vision. They create platforms where individual expression is appreciated and accepted. Their booth was fun as you could dress up in drag and take photos against a backdrop.
