Spanish Class Visits Mission Cultural Center

As part of a Spanish Unit on el Día de los Muertos, all of Grade 5 traveled to the Mission District to tour the Mission Cultural Center and explore the murals of Balmy Alley. Docent Jesús Tecolotecpatl spoke with students about: indigenous beliefs around the concept of time, the environment, life/death, social justice, and immigration.

The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts was established in 1977 by artists and community activists with a shared vision to promote, preserve and develop the cultural arts that reflect the living tradition and experiences of the Chicano, Central and South American, and Caribbean people, and to make arts accessible as an essential element to community development and well-being.
