The common goals of all Día programming are to:
• Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.
• Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.
• Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.
• Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.
Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts is a 501c3 organization and Fort Worth’s only Latino Cultural Center dedicated to preserving, promoting, and interpreting the art, lives, and history of the Latino Culture for all to enjoy.
