Starting in early 2023 – the newly formed non-profit organization Grande Prairie Regional Latin Association is dedicated to celebrating and promoting Latin culture, heritage, and traditions within the community of Grande Prairie. Their mission is to foster cultural exchange, diversity, and inclusivity by offering engaging programs and events that showcase the richness of Latin American arts, music, dance, cuisine, and history.
Still in its early stages, the Latin Association is eager to engage with the community Representative Braulio Molina stated, “We plan to participate in local multicultural festivals and events, showcasing the diversity and contributions of Latin culture. Collaborate with other community organizations, such as the Cultural Diversity Alliance, to co-create inclusive events celebrating different cultures and traditions. And partner with local businesses and sponsors to support our events and enhance community outreach.”
In the future, the organization plans to provide a range of programs and services that cater to the diverse needs of the community, such as:
- Host an Annual Latin Festival: A vibrant and immersive event celebrating Latin Culture through music, dance, food, and art.
- Welcome new Latin Community Members to the Grande Prairie Region.
