An initiative to coalesce and mobilize the Latino/Latina arts community
of the Seattle, Bellevue and surrounding districts.


Thanks to all who attended the Artist's Reception for the VIVA! Show on February 6th! Still lots of time to see this show!

La Sala is a collective formed to coalesce and mobilize the growing Latino/Latina arts community of the Seattle/Bellevue and surrounding districts. Recognizing the booming diaspora and the scarcity of data, space, presence and voice for this constituency, a committed consortium of arts advocates embarked on this empowerment enterprise. 

To raise the profile of the region's Latino/Latina artists and artisans, this collective set an agenda containing these goals and strategies:
  • Provide networking opportunities:
  • Offer periodic networking events
  • Build alliances across sectors
  • Disseminate information and resources:
  • Distribute e-newsletter and maintain website
  • Offer professional development opportunities
  • Collect data and maintain a database of artists and supporters
