Youth Arts in the Parks is presented by Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Disability Services, in partnership with Arts for Learning/Miami.

Youth Arts in the Parks was developed by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs as part of its “All Kids Included - Accessible Arts Experiences for Kids” (AKI) initiative.  AKI promotes inclusive arts and cultural programs in school settings and throughout the community so that kids of all abilities and their families can participate fully in the arts.  All Kids Included is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and in part through grant funding provided by The Children’s Trust.  The Children’s Trust is a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County.
