As part of the building of its new Miami Studies Program, the WPHL will host a number of workshops throughout the year that introduce a topic connected to Miami’s history, culture, literature, politics, and more. These workshops will also highlight a particular skill or competency—such as exhibition curation, podcasting, or oral histories, for example—which will help us strengthen our collective work.

All workshops will be free and open to the public!
