Herrera Internship Endowment

October 6October 31

The Herrera Internship Endowment was created by Dr. Denise Herrera to honor her parents (Yolanda and Fred Herrera) and grandparents (Reyna and Mariano Herrera), who did not have the opportunity to pursue higher education. As a native New Mexican, Dr. Herrera has dedicated much of her academic and professional career to the advancement of underrepresented groups in higher education. As a participant in several diversity programs herself, Dr. Herrera has mentored students from elementary through postdoctoral levels. This internship is intended to honor that tradition of “lifting others while we climb” and paying it forward. The Herrera Internship provides scholarships to Hispanic female students who complete an internship with the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

We are currently accepting applications for the Herrera Internship! The internship will begin in January 2021. Application deadline is October 31, 2020.

Teatro Paraguas: Volver, Volver, Volver

October 28

7 pm (MTS)

Live via Zoom
Free with registration; suggested donation of $7. Register HERE 

Our friends and partners at Teatro Paraguas are presenting a live Zoom performance of Volver, Volver, Volver, a play by New Mexico playwright Leonard Madrid.  Both Teatro Paraguas and Leonard Madrid have collaborated on various projects with the NHCC’s Performing Arts program over the years.

In Volver, Volver, Volver, which premiered at the NHCC in 2009, a young man who led a fast and reckless life is called back from the dead by an unknown bruja in Portales, and finds the inner peace that eluded him in life.

Virtual Día de los Muertos Concert: Las Flores del Valle of Albuquerque

November 1

7 pm
Museum of International Folk Art Facebook page HERE

Every year the NHCC holds its annual Despedida (Farewell) to celebrate Día de los Muertos with music, poetry, and hands-on art at this time-honored community gathering. Unfortunately, with the current health restrictions, this year’s Despedida is another wonderful in-person event that has been canceled. We are going to miss our ofrendas around the NHCC campus, as well as the music, poetry, traditional hot chocolate mexicano, pan de muerto, and the opportunity to share our heartfelt memories with you, our familia.

But we can still celebrate, and we hope you will join our friends at the Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) for a virtual Día de los Muertos concert featuring our friends Carol and Leila—Las Flores del Valle of Albuquerque.

Free community event

In 1999, Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company set forth on an artistic journey that would become America’s most distinctive flamenco project. This revolutionary performance entity combines the mosaic quality of the American repertory company with the authentic idiom of flamenco, creating a living archive of choreographic masterworks.
