Diamante Arts and Cultural Center–the oldest Latino/Hispanic Arts and Culture organization in North Carolina– is dedicated to the preservation, development, and promotion of the culture, heritage, and artistic expressions of the diverse Latino/Hispanic community of North Carolina. Through its programs and activities, it reaches more than 13,000 people per year.
Diamante engages the community in four key areas:
* Organizing activities that help develop understanding and appreciation of the Hispanic/Latino community; its diversity, cultural norms, and contributions.
* Offering cultural and arts programming that represent the Hispanic/Latino experience and advance its cultural heritage, art forms, and creative minds
* Designing initiatives that accelerate engagement and collaboration within the broader community for greater cross-cultural exchanges, networking, and shared action
* Creating opportunities that engage Hispanics/Latinos and other community groups (non-Hispanic/Latinos) in arts education, leadership, community service, and economic development
