What is VLAAC?
The Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre Society (VLACC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to contribute to the education and cultural legacy of all Canadians by exploring and sharing a deeper understanding of Latin American arts and cultures.
We are open and approachable. We celebrate diversity and thrive at the intersection of cultural traditions.
We partner with arts organizations and independent artists, building relationships with living expertise.
We nurture different thinking, value new ideas, and explore a broad range of artistic expressions.
We are a centre for cultural research and practice, working to better serve our many communities.
Since 2012, VLACC has been systematically implementing progressive phases of planning towards the goal of creating a Latin American cultural centre — a new physical creative hub centre for the work of Latin American artists and organizations, which recognizes the rapidly expanding cultural significance of the Latin American community in Canada.
