All Kids Included Family Arts Festival

Since 2011, The Moss Center has been the home of the AKI Field Trips and Festival Day that includes a full day of Free programming for children and their families with and without disabilities. The All Kids Included – Accessible Art Experiences for Kids (AKI) initiative was developed by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs in 2006 with initial funding from The Children’s Trust. AKI creates inclusive arts and cultural programs so that children and families of all abilities can enjoy the arts.

School Performance Field Trips

Every school year hundreds of students throughout Miami-Dade County are welcomed to the center to experience free day time performances for students in the Miami-Dade County Public School system as well as private and home schools. When available, performance study guides are provided to teachers to supplement their classroom activities and enrich the theater experience.

Teachers – are you signed up for our mailing list? If not, email so you don’t miss out on any of these opportunities.

Family Series

Each season The Moss Center presents opportunities for children and their families to enjoy the arts. The family series includes children’s literature-based theater performances as well as music and dance performances. These shows are programmed to offer something the whole family can enjoy together.
