Latino Artists Gatherings


Latino Artists Gatherings

Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, the Latino workshops were intended to assist artists working within Latino cultural traditions in non-metropolitan New York State. The gatherings provide an opportunity for Latino artists to come together to discuss issues and solve common problems. The goals were to provide opportunities to support and sustain the work of Latino artists and community leaders through creating opportunities for professional development and networking with like-minded individuals.

Dates and locations were as follows:
