#MiamiWalks | Hialeah in Progress
May 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
#MiamiWalks is part of a global walking movement known as Jane’s Walk, and is proud to be an anchor initiative of the 2018 #10DaysofConnection!
This neighborhood exploration of Hialeah will be led by Ariana Hernandez-Reguant, who’s a cultural anthropologist and have been conducting ethnographic research in Hialeah on immigration, citizenship and popular culture for a many years. She is also HICCUP’s founder, the Hialeah Contemporary Culture project. This walking tour through East Hialeah’s residential streets will focus on reflections of immigration, labor, culture, power and wealth.
The ultimate question is: Can Hialeah be gentrified…? Stops along the way include: the new Leah Arts District, as well as a traditional Cuban restaurant, several religious and cultural landmarks.
Accessibility: #MiamiWalks seeks to make this event as accessible as possible to individuals of all different abilities and needs. This walking tour in particular, will be bi-friendly (Spanish).
