VIZCAYA TAKEOVER TOURS: NEW VOICES ON INTERPRETING VIZCAYA

“Vizcaya is committed to championing programs that value diversity, foster equity, and empower an accessible and inclusive environment. Takeover tours/conversations seek to employ and reach a set of participants that broadens the lens of interpretation and diversifies the voices at Vizcaya to better reflect our community.

In partnership with the FIU Honors College, Vizcaya asks students and faculty to create new tours/conversations and interpretations that connect with identity, history and current events. Tours/conversations are innovative and incorporate diverse forms of engagement.”

Students will create their own individualized interpretive tour of Vizcaya. Students will design the tours, create a an accompanying two page guide, and lead the tours. The printed component must include original writing (poetry and prose) and at least one drawing and one photograph. These must be printed for tour participants and will be posted on this website.
