Latino Arts Preservation Program

One of the ways we help build community is supporting the community through the arts.

The Latino Arts Preservation Program is run by Southwest Key Programs and supports the preservation of Latino art forms, namely mariachi, ballet folklorico and bilingual theater in East Austin. Children and their parents learn, then help create and perform the pieces in a cultural exchange with other areas of Austin. Since the program started just over two years, originally for children, it has become tremendously popular and now not just the kids, but parents are heavily involved. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this program happen, especially our friends at Impact Austin.

Here is a short video we made to document and celebrate the program.
