All Cultures Together Through the Arts
Visit the Artistas Unidos website www.artistasunidos.org.
Artistas Unidos - Artists United is a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary community forum
for the benefit of all residents of Monterey County. We are dedicated
to providing an environment for artists from all cultures in Monterey
County to create and display or perform their works. The goal of Artistas Unidos - Artists United, as a nonprofit public benefit organization, is
to promote intercultural understanding and communication through the arts
with Salinas as the focal point.
We encourage people of all cultures to work together in our community,
to better understand each other, to celebrate our cultural differences,
and to address our common cultural concerns. Our program forges and strengthens
bonds between residents from varying backgrounds, and benefits the fundamental
groups in Monterey County: familial, cultural, and communal.
In order to break down cultural barriers in our area, we utilize all disciplines
in the arts to provide a venue for local artists to communicate as a group,
and use this forum to share their messages with the entire community.
As one of the only arts organizations in the Monterey Bay Area to host
an Artist in Residency Program, Artistas Unidos - Artists United contributes
to awareness of community diversity by hosting artists from around the
world to live and work in our area and provide workshops for all interested
Through our programs, Artistas Unidos - Artists United acts
as a catalyst in fostering positive community relationships, both personal
and professional, in which cultural awareness, inter-religious respect,
and gender equality are strengthened. In this manner, we bring Salinas
and Monterey County communities together through the power of the arts.
