MECA has served the Houston community as a Latino cultural center for over 35 years and is known for its culturally based arts education programs. MECA also presents local, national, and international artists as part of MECA Performing Arts, including the annual Día de los Muertos Festival; the series features multidisciplinary performances held at the MECA Dow School Auditorium and outdoor Pavilion Green Stage in the Old Sixth Ward Historic District.
MECA looks to collaborate with artists –through presenting, commissioning, producing– whose work traverses the boundaries of tradition, innovates time-honored practices, and give new perspective to the critical role the arts can play in contemporary social life. We are especially interested in artists whose work brings to light the experiences of life on the margins of societies, economies, and cultures.
