Signature Latino Cultural Events in East Phillips

Mary Anne Quiroz is a social practice artist with more than 10 years of experience serving various cultural and socio-economic backgrounds through the arts and other community engagement opportunities. Her project will provide a series of 4 to 8 signature Latino cultural events that will showcase strengths, talents, diversity, and community connections in the East Phillips neighborhood in partnership with Cooperativa Mercado Central. The goal of these cultural events is to empower the Latino community to reclaim the economic revitalization models and discussions that have been prescribed for them by providing a fresh lens of arts and culture as a means to promote economic success. The additional resources will also build the Mercado’s capacity for arts and cultural work and bring more diverse people together to learn about each other and support one another in our common social justice interests.
