OPEN is a 501(c)(3) organization launched in November 2017. Our goal is to make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate by giving local non-profits the resources they need to develop projects that unite, engage, and empower residents of diverse backgrounds. We support projects in the following four categories: Community Green Space, Media & Technology, Design & Architecture, and Public Art. One project out of each category will be awarded between $10,000 – $25,000 each, providing a grand total of $100,000 in funding. All completed projects must be made free and accessible to the public so that we may serve more people and help build lasting relationships.
Green space Miami
Green Space Miami is an initiative to create public parks and greenways in response to the increasing urbanization and lack of access to nature in the city. The initiative focuses on creating greater access to green spaces, mitigating the urban heat island effect, and promoting healthier lifestyle choices. Green space design is a critical component of the initiative to create outdoor spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, functional, and accessible for all users. The success of the initiative will be determined by how well it is implemented and the city’s commitment to sustainable development principles.
Viking architecture and Aztec design
This text compares and contrasts Viking architecture and Aztec design. Both used stone and wood in their constructions, but Viking architecture had dry-stone construction while Aztec design was more focused on symmetry and geometrical shapes. Both cultures incorporated ornate decorative elements in their structures, leaving behind a rich cultural legacy that still stands today.
General public art
Public art is accessible art displayed in public spaces, which can serve various purposes such as creating community identity, commemorating events or figures, and educating viewers about social issues. Public art can bring economic benefits and contribute to building prosperous communities. Street art sculptures are a unique form of public art that can also transform public spaces and encourage civic engagement.
