the project

Day of the Dead x Noche de Catrina is dedicated to funding multiple series within We Are Culture Creators Nonprofit. This gala will be held at the historic St Regis hotel and will encapsulate the diverse series of work that WACC provides and produces. Your donation will be used to execute 3 community events focused on the traditional latin holiday, Day of the Dead.

Over the past 7 years,  We Are Culture Creators has proven to be an innovative and dynamic music focused program. Through it's multiple programming including its iconic Culture House, young adult entrepreneurship programming, and curating series, WACC facilitates over 125 events yearly and reaches thousands within the Detroit Metro Area. This gala will be kicking off WACC’s first annual fundraising event. As a small nonprofit, WACC depends on individual donor relationships, grants, and independent commercial contracts to sustain our programming. This is our first effort to create an annual donor list to help support the We Are Culture Creators work in music, art, culture, and community. 

Donate $50 today and receive 2 tickets to our First Annual Noche De Catrina Fundraising Event at Hotel St. Regis, Detroit on October 30,2021.

We Hope to see you there!

why we're doing it

Due to the lack of outdoor performace space for BIPOC People, muisc, art focused programming, & access to quality equipment & space, We Are Culture Creators strives to fill that void. We support over 200 Detroit artist by creating events to provide economic opportunity, equity, and empowerment. We create outlets within our nonprofit for our diverse collective consisting of Black, Latinx, Natives, & Arabic folx. Hosting this annual fundraising event will allow us to continue future projects that allign with our mission.
