New Online Guide Tracks Latino Arts Events and Performances in Houston

0

With Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) underway, a convenient new calendar courtesy of a local nonprofit invites Houstonians to a host of Latino arts and culture events to celebrate the occasion.

The calendar (find it here) is created and organized by Advocates of a Latino Museum of Cultural and Visual Arts & Archive Complex in Houston, Harris County (ALMAAHH) and is intended to showcase the myriad cultural offerings of Harris County’s larger population.

Particular attention is given to under-the-radar Latino designers and creatives, according to the organization’s board chair, Geraldina Wise. “We want to use this online tool as an opportunity to showcase events with artists you might not otherwise encounter,” Wise said.

Users can browse the calendar through several options, including by type of artistic activity, region, date, etc. Interested persons can submit requests to include events or activities here.

While the one-stop guide was created specifically for Hispanic Heritage Month, Wise notes that users may visit the guide in the future to support the community.

“We started with events taking place during Hispanic Heritage Month to kick off the calendar,” she said. “But we will continue to add new events and make this the most comprehensive online Latin arts and culture resource for the Greater Houston area.”
