Welcome to Cultura en Austin, a new blog focusing on Latino cultural arts. I grew up in the Texas border town of Eagle Pass, and have been covering Latino culture for the American-Statesman and Austin 360 since 2011. Before that, I covered Latino issues as a journalist in Mexico City.
You can find my monthly column highlighting the best Latino events every last Friday of the month in print and online in Austin 360.
So, let’s deep dive into the richness of Austin’s Latino culture from art to music. Know of a cool cultural event? Is there an inspiring Austin-based Latino/a in the arts that we should know about? Let us know, and let’s explore the city’s cultural gems together.
