ALBUQUERQUE — The National Hispanic Cultural Center and Foundation announced they have received a $150,000 planning grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to bring the community together to work through the deep historical and contemporary issues that falsely divide people by race, gender and more.
The grant will allow the NHCC to plan story-sharing and community dialogues to occur in 2018, and the creation of commissioned artwork that draws from these community stories and are presented in 2019.
The NHCC intends to invite many community organizations and individuals of all backgrounds, identities and ages, to participate in both planning and the community dialogues, providing input on artist commissions, and presenting the devised work.
