FALL 2019

Two photographers capture Miami from a micro and a macro perspective. One’s realm is the streets, an intimate portrayal of the city’s actors, while the other’s take is from up high. Two views juxtaposed.  

A Literary Evening

Dramatic readings from Curiosities, Raul Guerrero's new book, a collection of autobiographical essays on language, culture, and sex.

A Tango Happy Hour

Dance, watch, drink, feel tragic, drink some more, flirt. Feel interesting… What a way to decompress after a long week of work. Find out why the Miami New Times elected DASS the best place in Miami to meet good looking and intelligent people.


Climate Resilience Explained

Making sense of all those theories floating around. Do you sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed by so much information and opinions? We do at DASS, so we invited a scientist to translate and summarize in less than 60 minutes all that we need to know about Climate Resilience. 

Artificial Intelligence and the Brain

​There’s a drive for enhanced intelligence, "but there will be a long period of coexistence in which there will be an ecology of intelligence. Humans will become enhanced in different ways. Younger people who interact with smartphones from childhood will be cyborgs from the very beginning. They will think in different ways than current adults do," observes FRANK WILCZEK, Professor of Physics at MIT, recipient of the 2004 Nobel Prize in physics.

A provocative evening of science and technology.

A combination of open university and a local social club. a place to exchange ideas on scientific innovations, technological trends, books, art, and society. A chance to take a break from virtual reality and rediscover the art of conversation over a glass of wine, or two.
