  • Begin a soon-to-be announced partnership with an amazing magazine
  • Be featured guest speakers at various events across Austin
  • Plan more storytelling workshops with youth and community members

3 Ways to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage in Austin this month:

Carrie Rodriguez’ musical Laboratorio:

Don’t miss a magical evening at the Stateside on Sept. 25. Singer-songwriter Carrie Rodriguez has launched Laboratorio, a musical exploration and celebration of Latinidad and its contribution to the American experiment. Along with her star-studded band, she brings together acclaimed poet ire’ne lara silva + Latin Grammy-nominated Amalia Mondragón/Tereso Perfecto Contreras.

Cultivating Community through Art (Sam Coronado’s Serie Project and its Continuing Legacy):

Chicano art movement icon the late Sam Coronado made a lasting impact on Austin’s art community and beyond. Now, Austin Community College honors his legacy with an exhibit on the Highland campus. Catch it now throughout December 8.

La Lucha Sigue, Eastside Stories art exhibit at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center:

Arte Texas, an organization focused on preserving, restoring and celebrating East Austin murals, street art and public art, brings this powerful art exhibit to the community. It features artwork from native East Austin artists and shows their connection to cultura, identity and history. Check it out now at the MACC’s Sam Coronado Gallery through Oct. 8th.
