Latino Cultural Center of Memphis Celebrates 2nd Year Anniversary



You are invited to the second anniversary celebration of the Centro Cultural Latino de Memphis (Latino Cultural Center of Memphis) on Saturday, June 29th from 5pm to 7pm at Caritas Village, 2509 Harvard Avenue in Binghampton.

Two years after opening its doors to the community, the CCLM - represented by a steering committee composed of local residents active in the Latino arts and cultural community - couldn't be prouder of announcing this big milestone. "It has been a huge adventure for us," said Gaelle Llambi, a member of the steering committee. "This couldn't have been possible without the dedication, love and talent of our local artists who, weeks after weeks, are teaching, fomenting and creating new forms of cultural expression."

The Centro opened its doors in June 2011 to strengthen the local Latino community through the development of artistic understanding and practice among both youth and adults. Workshops on Aztec Dancing, Drawing for Youth, Theatre and Literature are taught by accomplished practitioners of each creative discipline. At the end of each session, a showcase is organized to present the work of the students. 

On the 29th of June the traditional dance troupe of Tierra Mestiza will perform, the hip-hop group 901 House of Dance, Poetry by Federico Gomez' students, Rosa Mena will tell children's stories, an art exhibit by Bianca Tudon's students, a presentation of Alebrijes, Danza Azteca Quetzalcoatl, Caza Teatro, and musical guest Aditi Amor.

All showcases and our anniversary celebrations are free and open to the public, so bring your family, friends and neighbors because that's what it's all about at the Centro.
