About This Project

“Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.”… Jimi Hendrix

Imagine a venue filled with the sounds of local performers jamming to a packed audience. "Play Your Stuff" is an ArtServe initiative designed to provide a setting for local musicians to play their music for an audience and to have the opportunity to make music and music education a permanent part of their lives. 

ArtServe is seeking funds to replace the Audio/Visual equipment in the Classical South Florida Hall at ArtServe.  This system will serve non-profit, cultural organizations and their music programs that call ArtServe home.

ArtServe is a multi-disciplinary cultural hub that plays host to numerous grass roots level music, dance and theatrical performances as well as creative classes, workshops and gallery exhibits. 

Enhancing ArtServe’s audio/visual equipment will go a long way to developing many of the existing programs and also allow for the following: 

  • Launch Play Your Stuff, currently in the developmental stages
  • Support to Gold Coast Jazz Society’s Jazz Jams
  • Develop "Fort Lauderdale's most anticipated event of the summer..." -ArtServe's Red Eye Event (the auditorium plays host to many local bands and a fashion show)
  • Improve ArtServe’s ever popular exhibit (Inside)/Out, art as healing therapy (the auditorium is used for workshops pertaining to resources for art therapy)
  • Improve Broward County Cultural Division’s Technical Assistance Program Workshops
  • Improve Cooperative Marketing Program Workshops 
  • Attract additional performances by Broward based cultural organizations
