Listen to Charlotte View 2011 as we interview the people behind: "Con A de Arte".

"Con A de Arte" is an annual event organized by Art Si. It is a celebration of Hispanic/Latino culture and artistic expression from art, photography and literature to dance, music and drama. This popular festival has been celebrated since 2004. Every year a call for Artist is send to group together talented latino artist in the Charlotte area.

Art Si! is a community initiative developed to support, connect and train Latinos in the arts in Mecklenburg County. The goals of Arts Si! are to connect Latino artists to available resources, to create opportunities, to empower Latino initiatives, and bridge the cultural, communicational and financial barriers that Latinos in the arts may face.

This initiative was created when the North Carolina Arts Council connected key advocates from various Latino artists and groups in our county into one cohesive group. Representatives from the Arts & Science Council, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, McColl Center for Visual Art, Latin American Coalition, Graphic Designer Carlos Crespo, Marketing Consultant Ana Lucia Divins and other individual advocates share a common voice in this project.
