URBAN-15 creates. We motivate creativity, inspire imagination and bring optimism to our community.
Using music, movement and media, our mission is to create:
- Productions that merge traditional Latino culture, modern artistic aesthetics, and creative technologies;
- Educational programs that develop skills and creativity; and
- Life-long access to and participation in artistic exploration for both the artist and the community.
URBAN-15 pursues a philosophy of inclusion that crosses lines of gender, class, race, and religion. Breaking prejudicial barriers of size, age, and norms of physical beauty, we have revolutionized community access to music and dance and transformed the way our community celebrates.
