Sixth National Conference, National Association of Latino Arts & Culture (NALAC) presents:
Arts! Culture! Leadership! Accíon!
October 11-15, El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, San Antonio, Texas
The NALAC National Conference is the only national gathering of the not-for-profit Latino arts and cultural field providing a unique opportunity for engaging in dialogue, networking, collaboration building and professional development. The conference presents a broad, national perspective on the state of Latino artistic and cultural expression influenced by a combination of transnational identities, cultural values and social justice.
The four-day event features three keynote speakers who will inspire you, as well as 22 panels and workshop sessions on topics such as fundraising, leadership transition, definition of the aesthetic, cultural policy, art as identity and resistance, and arts and technology. In addition, there will be roundtable discussions and discipline-specific workshops for peer exchange of common challenges, ideas and technique.
Conference performers include Marga Gomez, Paul Flores, Merian Soto & Elio Villafranca, Universes and Los Tres Acordiones–Grammy winners Sonny Sauceda and Joel Guzman and Flaco Jimenez–among many others.
