Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural
Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural is a not-for-profit learning and cultural arts center. The Centro supports and promotes the continued growth, development, and holistic learning of its community through the arts. It provides a positive space for people to activate what we all share as human beings: the capacities to create, to imagine, and to express ourselves in an effort to improve the quality of life for our communities. The primary purpose of Tia Chucha’s Centro is to provide a cultural space with arts and media workshops, presentations, readings, family events, performances, computer literacy, and healing/talking circles that draw on and enrich the creative spirit inherent in each person, family, and community. The Centro cultivates the practice and discipline associated with writing, visual art, music, dance, theater, performance, film, radio, TV, publishing, sound production, and computer graphics and technology in the large Chicano/Mexicano/Central American communities of the greater Los Angeles area, particularly the Northeast San Fernando Valley. The Centro also actively supports and promotes existing organizations and individuals through programming that involves individual artists and group residencies; invited artists and groups; and international artists and groups that tap into the intrinsic energies, aspirations, and needs of its community.
