We are a cultural exchange channel between Latinos/Hispanics and the community at large.
We realized that a creative hub was needed for the Latino community in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
We offer various forms of art in Spanish and some bilingual projects.
Highs: Unbelievable support from our team of volunteers and the community in general. Also, seeing the impact we make on people of all ages who benefit from our shows, book circles, and classes.
Lows: financial challenges.
Not to give up! To be transparent and to stay true to our mission.
We were looking for more expertise in the non-profit world. It is a different set up for sure.
SCORE has kept us connected with other organizations, and keeps us updated about resources offered in the community for our growth.
Jon has been extraordinary at connecting us with more people in the community who we can work with or learn from. He also shares great information with us for webinars, and other opportunities we should not miss. He talks proudly about our work and has helped us spread the word about the work we do.
Get the right guidance and ask all the questions before you take a step. Do not make assumptions...they will just delay processes in the long term.
