On Saturday April 9, 4WORTHDOING (4WD) presented “TENANTS, PEOPLE WORKERS POWER!” – an art and music fundraiser at the North Beach Bandshell. “TENANTS, PEOPLE, WORKERS POWER!”.
Gentrification & new money in Miami is pushing local residents out of legacy neighborhoods.

TENANTS, PEOPLE WORKERS POWER! will directly fund this effort.
Miami-based arts organization, Oolite Arts will invite some of their artists to present at the show including a photo exhibition by current Oolite Arts resident, Roscoè B. Thické III & will screen several short films commissioned by Oolite Arts in partnership with Community Justice Project.
The event features live music performances and streamed online by Rub ‘n Tug (DJs Eric Duncan and Thomas Bullock), Almanaq Radio and by Dyna Edyne.
