This month we check in with two organizational grantees of the NALAC Fund for the Arts from the Sonoran Desert and Motor City. We ask them what’s it’s like to be a grantee and where they see the future of Latinx arts and cultures. Borderlands Theater in Tucson, Arizona is supporting immersive theater in the historic Barrio Anita, while Motor City Street Dance Academy in Detroit, Michigan is teaching youth the dance elements of hip-hop through the S.E.E.D. program (Spreading the Elements Everywhere in Detroit). Read on to learn more about this work and how in many ways, small Latinx arts organizations already represent the future of our diverse arts and culture field.

The 12th funding cycle for NALAC Grants is now open, with new opportunities and updates for Latinx arts and culture initiatives that demonstrate artistic excellence In pursuit of social justice.
