Get your tickets now for Tía Chucha's Gala 2018!

The mission of Tía Chucha’s Centro Cultural is to transform community in the Northeast San Fernando Valley and beyond through ancestral knowledge, the arts, literacy, and creative engagement.

Tía Chucha’s began as a café, bookstore and cultural space owned and run by former Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis J. Rodríguez, his wife Trini Rodríguez, and their brother-in-law Enrique Sánchez. Tía Chucha’s provides year-round on-site and off-site free or low-cost arts and literacy bilingual intergenerational programming in mural painting, music, dance, writing, visual arts, healing arts sessions (such as reiki healing) and healing/talking circles. Workshops and activities also include Mexica ("Aztec") dance, indigenous cosmology/philosophy, and open mic nights. Tía Chucha’s hosts author readings, film screenings, and art exhibits, and is the home of a press that has published award-winning volumes of poetry and other works of literature. Check out this calendar of events to learn more.

Each year, Tía Chucha's hosts a gala that not only allows the community to come together and celebrate our collective achievements, but also allows a celebratory space to honor those who have given to our community. Additionally, it provides a chance to help raise the much-needed resources to continue Tía Chucha's mission.

This year, the Gala honorees are Cherrie Moraga, Yreina D. Cervantez, and Trini Rodríguez. Early bird tickets are available until September 30! So, please buy your tickets now by going here. And we look forward to seeing you for an evening of food, drink, music, dancing, and cultura!
