The 3rd Annual Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week 2021 (#FTLADW21) RETURNS January 16-24, 2021 with a hybrid online & in person schedule full of exploration throughout the Greater Fort Lauderdale community in Broward County.

#FTLADW is a result of the desire to unite all of Fort Lauderdale’s arts & cultural institutions in an effort to highlight all that the city has to offer through an annual self-guided tour and celebration of everything art and culture throughout the Greater Fort Lauderdale area. The ultimate goal in creating this week is to establish Fort Lauderdale as an international cultural destination.

The week will showcase the vast amount of cultural opportunities the city has to offer residents, collectors, dealers, art enthusiasts and visitors alike. All of this will be made possible while also serving as a platform for research and promotion of the arts, its relationship to the community, and discussions over contemporary art trends in the areas of Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Music, Theater, and other facets of The Arts. This week will also help promote diversity, bring neighbors into dialogue, increase creativity, and offer opportunities to cultivate civic pride.
