We are celebrating 21 years! The Puerto Rican Cultural Center is the only cultural center in Texas and the Southwest affiliated with the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP) for ongoing cultural programming. Founded in 1997 by Taino blood-descendant Dr. Ana María Tekina-eirú Maynard, the mission of our nonprofit 501(c)(3) is to promote cultural awareness and pride through education programs and cultural events based in folklore, history and tradition -- dance, music, community theatre, and indigenous cultural traditions. Our center brings a focal point to Austin for offering heritage programs whose achievement and quality have been validated by repeat support (since 2001) from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Texas Commission on the Arts, City of Austin Cultural Arts Division, NEA Chairman's Award (2007), and Humanities Texas (2011+).
