About the National Association of Latino Arts & Cultures (NALAC)

Since 1989, the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures has delivered programs that stabilize and revitalize the US Latinx/é arts and cultural sector via funding, leadership training, convenings, research, and advocacy. Our constituency is a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, and interdisciplinary community that includes thousands of Latinx/é artists and hundreds of nonprofit Latinx/é arts and cultural organizations in urban, suburban, and rural communities.

NALAC envisions a cultural landscape that fully values and integrates the essential contributions of an expanding Latinx/é cultural sector and its dynamic workforce.
