Mi Cultura Art Project
Cultivating young global citizens in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area through art education!
Mi Cultura is an inquiry based educational initiative that provides programming and workshops about the diverse cultures of Africa and Latin America. Our programs cultivate young people’s curiosity through experimental visual art projects that embody community building, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Our programs are offered through partnerships with schools, cultural institutions and as stand alone events in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.
The founders of MiCultura Art Project are two passionate Bay Area Teaching Artists who are committed in fostering young people’s curiosity about the diverse cultures and creative practices of Latin America and Africa.
