Since 2005, the Brazilian Arts Foundation has received funding from the City of Houston through grants from the Houston Arts Alliance.
The Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) is a 501C3 non-profit arts organization. The mission is to support and promote artistic life in the Houston region through programs, initiatives and alliances. Advancing the nonprofit arts industry in Greater Houston improves the region’s quality of life, ensures a competitive economy, and creates an appealing tourist destination. As one of the country’s fastest growing cities and the world’s energy capital, Houston is now a center for art of extraordinary caliber and diversity.
“The HAA has been vital to our growth as an organization. From our first grant in 2005, which funded our annual Capoeira event, to subsequent General Operating Support and Expansion grants, they have allowed us to diversify and expand our programming. Most recently, we were accepted into the MODE Arts Incubator program which is really taking our organization to the next level. As Executive Director of a non-profit, I am honored to have the support of the City of Houston and the HAA.” -Mauricio Campos, President/CEO.
The Consulate General of Brazil in Houston has supported the Brazilian Arts Foundation through promoting our events and programs to the Brazilian community, as well as assisting in the Houston Brazilian Festival by financing our efforts to bring Brazilian artists to perform at the event.
They have donated boxes of books to the Brazilian Arts Foundation, allowing us to start our BAF Library project, as well as invited our Executive Director, Mauricio Campos, to represent Houston’s Brazilian community at the III Conferencia das Comunidades Brasileiras no Exterior at the Palacio Itamaraty in Rio de Janeiro.
