Join San Anto and Xicana Xicano Education Project (XXEP) in celebrating the release of Desahogate #2: Amor y Pazion (cover art by SACA's CMP Coordinator Ruth Buentello), a San Antonio barrio-based literary anthology with work from over 30 local writers and artists. This event at Guadalupe Street Coffee will mark the first-time release of the publication. After the release XXEP and San Anto will host an open mic event with a special reading featuring Desahogate contributors.
SACA is very excited to be a part of this empowering and fun event. Hope to see you on Viernes!

¡Feliz Año Nuevo de San Anto Cultural Arts!
SACA staff has hit the ground running as the new year has arrived. Last year saw tremendous changes in the life of the organization, and I want to thank each of you for supporting us with encouragement, time, inspiration, and love. We never would have weathered the loss of Manny without you; your belief in San Anto Cultural Arts helped us survive after his passing. Even though it's been a year, we miss him every day and we keep his mission and vision in our daily work.
The hardest part of the transition may be over, but 2010 is going to prove to be a HUGE year for San Anto Cultural Arts, and we need your continued support as much as ever as we strive to meet the increased demand for our programs and services. here are a few highlights to watch out for as we look toward 2010...
· Raza Poetry and Open Mic Night featuring Desahogate #2: Amor y Pazion at Guadalupe Street Coffee from 6:30-9:00 p.m. on Friday, January 22
