Rasquache Artist Residency


The Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center Inc. (SQACC) strives to be a premier, regional, and Latino based organization that advances the important roles that art and education play in everyday lives. SQACC supports and gives voice to the artistic and educational expressions which advance community development, responsibility and social equity, cultural diversity, global awareness and stewardship, as well as the empowerment of the Latina and Latino identities.

Rasquache residency seeks to create collaborative environment of socially engaged activities that benefit both the artist and his/her work as well as the local community.  Rasquache believes in cultural and artistic agency as an empowering and critical tool for both the artist and the community.
