The Crescendo Cultural taskforce, an initiative of the National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago, comprises young, Latino art professionals who participate in an ongoing dialogue about Latino involvement in arts organizations. This session will present ideas from next generation leaders on supporting cultural institutions, funders, and scholars in the preservation and presentation of Latino arts and culture and on ensuring lasting Latino participation. Highlights include strategies for the equitable distribution of dollars dedicated to Latino arts, the maximization of dynamic projects and collaborations within community organizations, and support for Latino arts organizations as they diversify and broaden their funding sources.
