Isabella Acker is the supernova behind the community-wide effort that consists of events that include bonfires under the stars, movie nights, famers’ markets, live music concerts and creative workshops. This Southern charmer moved to Miami 7 years ago and fell in love with the potential she saw in our city. “In place of focusing on voids, I focus on the room there is to pioneer,” she says. “All of the pop-up concerts, laid-back rooftop happy hours, guided city tours, farm-to-table dinners and intimate storytelling that I love to indulge and share in are the kinds of things I want to create, develop and make accessible in Miami.” And she and her team have done exactly that — the second you step foot in one of her events, there’s a sense of “Ah, yes, I could belong to this tribe.” Her mantra is: “Go out there and create the city you want to be proud to call home.”; ThePrismMusicGroup.com.
