The Latin@ Culture Show, LCS, serves to broaden awareness of the spectrum of Latino culture through artistic expression. As a student-run program, LCS provides the opportunity for University of Michigan students, faculty, and Ann Arbor residents to learn and share in a variety of experiences brought to life on stage by community participants. Since it’s founding in March 2001, the mission of LCS has been to promote and embrace the often over-looked Latino presence at the University of Michigan. Since then the show has grown tremendously in its production has attracted large numbers of community members to both participate in and attend the celebration. Staying true to its promise, students work collectively to help coordinate this innovative event as LCS continues to demonstrate the limitless contributions of Latinos to our local university, community and in mainstream society. The Latin@ Culture Show provides a space to analyze, critique and appreciate a culture that most are unfamiliar with, while also providing the opportunity for the students involved to share their insights, talents and creativity in a production that gives voice to marginalized people.
