Dedicated to celebrating the most current and compelling Latinx voices, New Latin Wave is a multidisciplinary platform for Latinx arts and culture that seeks to open conversations about Latinx contributions and identity in the US.
We showcase Latinx artists and culture-makers working outside of the mainstream and we are a resource for discovery and exchange for those within and outside the Latinx arts community in NYC and beyond. Our mission is to generate opportunities for greater and more diverse visibility and representation; to empower creators; to incubate emerging talent; and to build a network of collaborators, cultural producers, venues and institutions that support artist and audience development.
New Latin Wave started as a series of ad hoc cultural and discursive events, including concerts, exhibitions and panel discussions, evolved into a now annual one-day festival in Brooklyn, and launched a podcast spotlighting the Latinx cultural multiverse.
"Latin culture is as amorphorous and dynamic as the people within it, and the New Latin Wave festival in Brooklyn is bringing contemporary Latinx creativity to a wider audience."
