ArtSí Charlotte offers the following opportunities
to Latino artists, organizations and other community members interested in promoting the Latino art and culture in the city:
ArtSí Charlotte members have networking opportunities to connect with other artists in the community as well as with others able to support the artistic community (financially and otherwise). In 2014, ArtSí is launching a new initiative called: “Cafecito with ArtSí”, an opportunity to spend more time in community, learning about each other’s projects, sharing call to artists, events, professional development opportunities and much more. So be on the look for this informal event once a month and connect with ArtSí with “un cafecito”.
