Program areas at MACLA

Each year the Organization produces approximately 50 various activities in the following areas: visual arts, performance and literary arts, and youth arts education. The Organization offers four major visual art exhibitions each year that showcase artists whose work is rooted in the Latinx experience and inclusive of a broader multicultural sensibility. Exhibitions are free to the public. They include artist talks, gallery walks and lectures that expand upon the themes and issues addressed and place artists within their artistic and cultural contexts. From hip-hop and spoken word to music, theater, and dance, the Organization offers performance and literary arts that provides new perspectives on contemporary Latinx culture and civic society. The Organization uses Castellano Playhouse, a leading downtown venue, for the presentation of Latinx and other multicultural artists and performing arts groups. The Organization commissions at least one major new performance work every year in collaboration with peer organizations who are members of the National Performance Network (NPN) providing financial resources to support the development of new work. In collaboration with NPN, the Organization offers artist residencies and presents national touring artists. The Organization is an active participant in South First Fridays monthly art walk. The Organizations performers represent the best of the Latino diaspora in the Bay Area. The Organizations Teen Tech Center (TTC) provides a comprehensive arts education dedicated to mentoring urban Latinx youth, ages 13-18, in 21st century skill development through multimedia production. The Teen Tech Center offers free after-school and summer sessions during which teens design and complete projects then showcased through video screenings, music and poetry performances, or gallery exhibitions. The year-round curriculum, taught by experienced educators in our state-of-the-art studio environment, includes videography, music, poetry and digital photography. The Organizations annual Family Art Day features activities specifically designed to engage parents and their children, enhance their understanding of exhibitions through hands-on experiences in the arts, and build future audiences for contemporary Latinx art.
