The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center (ESB-MACC) celebrates and supports Latino arts in the Austin community. The ESB-MACC created a residency program in August 2011 to increase awareness of local Latino arts organizations. The creation of the ESB-MACC Latino Arts Residency Program will attribute to the vision of Austin being recognized as the main center for Latino Arts.

Teatro Vivo’s partnership with the ESB-MACC was announced on July 13 through the Latino Arts residency program process. Being a part of the residency will influence growth in the Latino arts community and engage Austin audiences in celebrating our culture.

JoAnn Reyes, Executive Director of Teatro Vivo says that the partnership is beneficial because, “We establish a presence in one location that is great for our audience and great for the MACC in establishing a consistent arts program.”

Free parking is available for those attending Teatro Vivo productions at the ESB-MACC.
