We’re excited to announce that Central American Collective has been awarded a Houston BANF grant!
The past few years have been a labor of love researching, learning, and connecting to spotlight the positive impact of Central Americans. We are so thankful for this opportunity to continue building Central American cultural capital and empowering our communities through the power of art and culture. In the upcoming weeks we will share what we’ve been working on for 2022!!
We’re proud of our team and of our fellow grantees for their unwavering dedication to serving Houston’s communities of color through the arts.
This 2021 we celebrate literary works by Central American authors. Too often our voices are lost in the larger Latin American space so it’s important to uplift our own across all industries and mediums. We’ve compiled a list of Central American authors (one source: Teaching For Change) that we wish to highlight. As part of this effort we’ve also purchased the books and plan on raffling them off at in person events in Houston and through social media.
Please help us continue uplift our voice by supporting Central American authors and also share with us any additional authors we should highlight in the future.
You are invited to celebrate Central American Film with us at SXSW…
Join us Sunday, March 10th from 7-9pm as the Central American Collective brings together community, business and industry leaders to celebrate the accomplishments of Salvadoran talent in the visual arts.
We want to thank Gloria’s Latin Cuisine in Downtown Austin for opening their doors and hosting this very special reception. This Salvadoran owned franchise has been a champion of our community by supporting charitable causes and continues to celebrate our culture through an extraordinary culinary experience.
