Mexicali Rose

Mexicali Rose is a grass roots communitarian organization dedicated to providing free access to artistic media for the lower income community youth of Mexicali, Baja California. Mexicali Rose Media/Arts Center is located in the neighborhood of Pueblo Nuevo, one of the city’s oldest and most vibrant areas historically and the area closest in physical vicinity to the U.S./Mexico border. The organizers were brought up and are based in this region and recognize a real need for different options for the youth of this community.

The purpose of this project is to give bordertown youth an avenue to express themselves and reflect their environment creatively and positively through art. By giving this craft to communities who might not otherwise have any media-related voice or capabilities, the project could serve as a positive alternative to a new generation. Through art, kids can express and affect the issues that they are undergoing as young people in a place as culturally diverse and challenging as the U.S./Mexico border.

The target age for the children involved in this artistic community is 13-18 years of age.

Mexicali Rose Media/Arts Center is equipped for the following:
• Documentary Filmmaking courses (including computers with editing software)
• Fine Arts courses
• Community Gallery
• Free computer/internet access to community students (Amongst other possible workshops & courses)

There is a strong desire to maintain a trans-cultural interchange by hosting filmmakers/bands and welcoming them into Mexicali with open arms and admiration for the sharing and development of a mutual craft.

ALL PROGRAMS ARE FREE OF CHARGE TO THE YOUTH OF MEXICALI
