The Mexican Heritage Corporation serves the Silicon Valley and Northern California by presenting and advancing Mexican and multicultural performing arts and arts education. We accomplish this through:
1) The San José Mariachi and Mexican Heritage Festival and its related concerts and educational workshops.
2) Arts education programs for grades K-12.
3) Presenting Los Lupeños de San Jose, Northern California's premier ballet folklórico company, in concert.
4) Special events: Visual arts exhibitions, community festivals and concerts, workshops, symposiums, lecture/demonstrations, special receptions, and master classes.
MHC has been presenting, producing, promoting, and educating students and the public about the dance, music and visual arts traditions of Mexico for over twenty-five years, creating opportunities for individuals and communities to celebrate, share, and sustain the vitality of Mexico's ethnic and traditional cultural arts and multicultural arts within the region. Our work promotes the importance of cultural heritage for strengthening ethnic identity and community and creating successful futures for our children.
The mission of the Mexican Heritage Corporation is to affirm, celebrate and preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Mexican community and showcase multicultural arts within the region.
