Marco Loera is a Cultural Producer, Organizer, and Strategist, based in Los Angeles, California. For the past 20 years, he has worked with inner-city youth, unaccompanied minors, and immigrant workers using art to build power, educate, inspire, bring healing, and raise visibility and awareness about their struggles, contributions, and dignity to broader audiences.
As the Director of Art and Technology with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), he has worked on developing relationships with artists to produce work that elevates the issues of individual cases, campaigns, and programs that NDLON is focused on. He has coordinated work with many artists, musicians, clothing companies, and collectives producing music videos, musical protest events, short documentary videos, and digital and printed viral imagery as part of political organizing strategies.
Marco holds a BA in Studio Art with a Minor in Chicano Studies from San José State University and an MFA in Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to meet other Latinx artists, cultural workers, and administrators to build relationships that can potentially lead to new collaborations and partnerships, and open up opportunity to apply for additional funds for our organization’s art and culture work.”
