Synopsis

This document was issued in 1989 as an agenda of the needs and dreams for Latino culture and the arts in Michigan. The agenda, composed of three sections, proposed to address issues of unity, diversity, and the further development of Latino culture and the arts within the Latino community, as well as issues of access, training, and education in society at large. The agenda also challenged the adaptation, assimilation, and institutionalization of Latino community art organizations as well as Eurocentric art criteria and the inadequate grant category model.
