“Don’t Look for the Cultural Bridges, Create Them” by Audri Rodriguez @audri_rodriguez of @fiuinstagram at @sitgesturisme
Sitges and Miami. Two cities that although are geographical opposites, share a myriad of similarities. But how? How can two cities in two completely different countries with two absolute diverse cultures be tied historically? The answer is people. Us. We are the ones who create these links. We form our own bridges and connect our own cultural heritages to form something even bigger. We create a bridge between two worlds that may seem far apart and bring them together. Charles Deering and Santiago Rusinol- one example of a bridge that has led to the formation of a bond unimaginable to a student in Miami with no knowledge of Sitges. Without people, we build nothing; with them, we can build everything.
FORMAT Students will explore the city of Mitges, Spain. Each student will select one aspect of Mitges to reflect upon. The subject selected can be a person, place or event.

SHARING Projects will be posted on a social media public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
