This Project is dedicated to the preservation of Hispanic Culture.  We will, through a select group of young artists, bring an exciting cultural enrichment program to the community.  Our goal is to increase cultural awareness by providing enjoyable and significant educational performances, and to expand the diversity of our audience in a gang/drug free environment.

Our sponsors:  Nebraska Arts Council, Lincoln Arts Council, Lincoln Community Foundation, Lambda Theta Nu Sorority, Inc., Latinos sin Fronteras, El Charro Auto Sales, La Mexicana, Lincoln Benefit Life, Keep Nebraska Beautiful.
