NoMAA’s 2017 Technical Assistance Institute: ‘Arts and Community’ at Luperon H.S.

Coordinator: Natalie Espino; Keynote Speaker / Moderator: Monica O. Montgomery (Museum of Impact); Executive Director NoMAA: Joanna Castro

Suggested Admission: $25 online / $35 at the door

The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance NoMAA is proud to showcase and celebrate innovative, community-led arts initiatives that are working to expand arts and culture capacity and equity through cross-sector collaboration and inclusive community engagement.  The NoMAA 2017 Technical Assistance Institute will be a mini symposium organized around the general theme of alternative, community-based, arts-and-culture programming in our uptown neighborhoods. Invited panelists from various organizations working in the arts and beyond will be asked to give a brief summary highlighting examples of progress -successes and stumbles- and outlining future goals. The audience will include artists, educators, arts organizations, as well as partners in government, business, health, faith and other organizations engaged in the arts or community development. Participants will walk away with practical steps they might implement or adapt in their work as artists, educators or stakeholders in our on-going efforts to support artistic and creative experiences as essential parts of daily life and to preserve uptown’s cultural legacy.

Hispanic Federation and Lin-Manuel Miranda are supporting the Unity March for Puerto Rico to stand in solidarity – ONE people – ONE voice – against unjust laws that have been systematically oppressive and crippling to the people of Puerto Rico and the socio-economic growth and sustainability of the island. We must create forceful, sustained political pressure on our leaders until they act on behalf of their fellow Americans in Puerto Rico. We support a commitment to sustainable rebuilding efforts, transparency and accountability in the delivery of aid, and the elimination of Jones Act and the cancellation of Puerto Rico’s debt which are crippling Puerto Rico’s recovery.
