Our Voices. Nuestras Voces.

The Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA) is a transformative cultural engine helping drive our local Latino theater community to a more prominent level. Our organization is an ambitious and impactful program –which is urgently needed for our city as we wrestle with issues of cultural equity and inclusion.

It is a goal of ours to build a stronger foundation for the future Latino theater artists to thrive and grow!

The Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was formed in 2016 by the three most prominent Chicago Latino arts organizations: International Latino Cultural Center, National Museum of Mexican Art, Puerto Rican Arts Alliance and arts executive, Myrna Salazar, with the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and Allstate Insurance Company.
