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.
