ABOUT THE NALAC REGIONAL ARTS TRAINING WORKSHOPS

NALAC Regional Arts Training Workshops are convened throughout the nation to provide comprehensive professional development, training and a space for community dialogue among the Latino arts field and other diverse arts sectors.  These opportunities for relationship-building and networking are essential to the advancement of the Latino arts community, and the nation's art sector as a whole. Workshop presenters and participants are of diverse backgrounds, representing all artistic disciplines, and a strong ethnic, gender, age, sexual orientation, and economic diversity.

 

NALAC's workshops are one of its strategies to counteract the persistent barriers that bar Latinos from traditional sources of funding and professional opportunities. The workshops contribute to a deepening of an intergenerational association of Latino artists and arts professionals, effectively facilitating a multifaceted transfer of knowledge.  The NALAC Regional Workshops have demonstrated a great potential for cross-cultural collaborations and collective advocacy. Through the workshops, NALAC's listens to and learns from the field in order to more successfully understand and advocate for the changing needs of artists and arts professionals across the nation. By empowering the field and providing new opportunities, NALAC can reduce economic inequalities, galvanize multigenerational networks and actualize social change in the realms of racial equity and civic engagement.

 

 With 28 Regionals to date, participants deepen their engagement with each other, with NALAC, and together create, mobilize, and amplify a national Latino arts and cultural agenda that addresses issues of concern to historically underrepresented and disenfranchised communities.  Critical dialogue and creative thinking transpires through interactive workshops, discussion forums, artistic interventions, technical assistance, and performances.

About the NALAC Michigan Initiative

With generous support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, NALAC is making strategic investments in Michigan to bolster leadership development, grow networks and partnerships locally, regionally and nationally and provide financial resources for those front line artists and organizations involved in effecting change through arts and culture.

 

NALAC serves to build Latino communities and their connection to broader communities, particularly those most impacted by societal inequities. NALAC believes that if we are to achieve equity for all there must be opportunities for organizations and artists to strengthen their work, deepen their relationships, and develop and sustain cultural spaces from which to engage the public with diverse artistic expression. Furthermore, we believe that arts and culture are uniquely positioned to spark and sustain community change. While NALAC has had a presence nationally, we believe that building locally is paramount to the real, long-term and sustainable outcomes we seek alongside our communities, as such, we seek to build out capacity and encourage advocacy for and by Latino communities in Michigan through December 2016 through the following objectives: building a field and leadership conduit for Latinos in Michigan; strategic grantmaking; fostering connective tissue; amplifying advocacy and research.

 

The NALAC Michigan Inititative is made possible thanks to generous support from our funders, sponsors and partners. Thank you NALAC Members, Funders, Donors and wonderful Volunteers.
