The NALAC National Conference is the only national convening of the Latino arts and culture field. This is it. Seizing the Moment Now in Philadelphia. This October begins a new opportunity for critical professional training, leadership, networking, and national exposure for Latino
artists and arts professionals across the country.
Every two years we meet to share knowledge and resources to strengthen the Latino arts and culture community. We strategize, collaborate and use the research NALAC has compiled for the Latino arts and culture community to build the capacity of the arts community across the nation.
The NALAC national conference weaves together the diverse participants together and highlights thriving Latino artistic communities across the United States. Conference participants and speakers share their knowledge, resources, and strategies; create new relationships; plan artistic collaborations and organizational partnerships; and reaffirm or alter the field's national agenda.
Philadelphia has been named the top city in the United States for arts and culture this year. The 2012 conference gives participants access to the city's thriving Latino community with guided tours, performances, and visits to local arts and cultural attractions. Philadelphia's conference host committee, whose financial and programmatic commitment to the National Conference are a major factor in its organization, boasts an All-Star lineup of Latino artistic, business, philanthropic, and community leaders.
