Dear LCAC Family,
We hit 2021 with the wind at our backs.
We started the new year with a special conversation entitled Response (Art) Ability in Continued Times of Injustice. If you haven’t tuned in, the livestream lives on our website, and it will tour with Carne y Arena to Montreal and beyond. Our event has already reached over 2,500 people to date!
We are very proud of this event because it stands as an example of cultural courage, imaginative excellence and of what we can accomplish with collective impact in mind. I hope you are also proud and that you share it with others. In the months ahead, we will roll out other bold manifestations of our NEW Mission, Mission and Values.
The LCAC is proud to announce a partnership with some of our most passionate supporters in Denver - Norberto Mojardin, Jonathan Garcia and Stephani Salas at Latin Fashion Week Colorado (LFWC). Together, in partnership with the Jaguar de Oro, we will take LFWC, Colorado Day of the Dead Festival and Ofrendas to even greater heights. Stay tuned!
As we continue to enhance the LCAC blog, please follow us back to the website to delve deeper into Latino art, history and culture, and go behind the scenes with the Team. In the next blog entry, we will highlight what Hijos del Sol is doing to keep you safe while shopping.
Finally, in observance of Black History Month, we are highlighting Afro-Latino thought leaders and artists across Latin America weekly on our social media.
