Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA)

A Latino-based multidisciplinary arts and multicultural arts organization, MECA provides arts education, support services, and multicultural artistic programming to underserved, underrepresented families that help build community, discipline, self-esteem, and cultural pride.

MECA predominantly serves BIPOC communities in Houston and its surrounding areas. However, its doors are open to all communities regardless of color, sex, race, or religious beliefs.

The MECA Presents Performing Arts Series is a platform that convenes community through the arts and encourages dialogue about issues ranging from social justice and equity to diversity and community transformation. From incubating works in progress to presenting local and touring artists, MECA seeks to work with innovative and socially engaged artists whose work expands the boundaries of tradition and practice. MECA is especially interested in projects that bring to light the experiences of life on the margins of societies, economies, and cultures.
