Workshops

Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders is a New York-based non-profit organization 501(c)(3) dedicated to celebrating Mexican culture and promoting the understanding of Mexican traditions through arts, culture, humanities, and annual celebrations of holidays (Day of the Dead/Día de Muertos; Christmas/Posadas y Pastorelas), as well as festivals, concerts, performances, processions, installations, and seminars. Mexicans and New York area residents celebrate the richness and diversity of Mexican arts in five key areas: music, dance, visual arts, verbal arts and ritual, and culinary traditions.  

Objectives

  • Produce, promote and present cultural events, including festivals, concerts, performances, processions, installations, and seminars.

  • Serve as a clearinghouse for information on Mexican culture and community resources for educators, artists, immigrant families, and the general population through direct services and our website.

  • Collaborate with other community, educational and cultural institutions and initiatives through presentations, referrals, and an online calendar.

  • Provide technical and professional assistance to traditional Mexican artists in five key areas: music, dance, visual arts, verbal arts and ritual, and culinary traditions.

History 

Founded in 2000 as a project at the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, we attained independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) status in 2006. We have collaborated with leading international organizations, museums, and local cultural partners to create landmark events and celebrations of Mexican culture.
