The National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) is acting upon a complex challenge centered on developing effective strategies to support the growing Latino arts community and identifying new ways to build resources for the evolving Latino arts field. The Latino arts community is vast and diverse, representing different cultures, generations, economic classes, and political views.  With changing aesthetics, art forms and interests, we want to ensure that our programs and services change and develop alongside our community. 

We are interested in mobilizing and organizing a base that identify themselves as part of the NALAC community, beyond the current branded Membership program. It is possible for us to engage our members in a different and more significant way, from being recipients of programs to being the driving force behind our policy change and advocacy efforts.

With this in mind, we are launching a new engagement prototype by activating four regional allied NALAC “Pods” to co-design and lead forms of local activity, networking, resourcing, messaging, advocacy and peer to peer mentoring. The deployment of four Pods will take place in geographically and culturally diverse communities with various Latino population densities. Pods will have autonomy to engage in NALAC “value-based” activities that offer various levels/degrees of engagement to foster community building, refine leadership skills, sharpen aesthetic or critical thinking, amplify exposure/visibility, encourage advocacy, and/or create/promote unified messaging in support of Latino arts and culture and equity.  The Pod community’s own existing activities or events that align with NALAC values can be leveraged as complementary entry points for the Pod Pilot.

Use this form to submit a cover letter and resume according to the job or internship position for which you are applying.
