Goal

To make art more accessible to the Latino community by creating a community radio show and podcast that provides context on local cultural exhibits and events.

To make art more accessible to the Latino Community, radio host Silvia Pontanza will create “Coco’s Latinidad Art Radio Review,” a show and podcast that explains the arts in layman terms for Latinos unaccustomed to the St. Paul arts scene. Moving between English and Spanish, the show will integrate radio skits, interviews, contests, visiting guest artists and reviews, finding a thread that helps a novice take a leap of faith in experiencing the arts. The heart of the show will be Coco, a radio personality Pontaza developed during her time on a popular variety show in Guatemala City.
