About My Business:


Avokado Artists is a 360° not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to cross-cultural understanding through art and the cultivation, promotion, presentation and preservation of culturally significant artists and their work from around the globe. We strive to bring the works of these artists to the attention of the broadest possible audience. The organization was founded in 2004, and was granted 501(c)3 status in 2009. For the past twelve years, Avokado Artists has co-produced, curated and presented ¡Globalquerque! New Mexico’s Annual Celebration of World Music & Culture, which was recognized with a 2103 ABQ Bravos Award. ¡Globalquerque! programming includes multiple performing artists in world-class settings over two days as well as educational and community outreach programs around and during the festival. In 2016, Avokado Artists founded Festival Chispa, a New Latin Music Festival, in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque. Avokado Artist presents performances, shows, educational and community events throughout the year. as well as consults and manages artists and other arts and cultural organizations. Artists and organizations that we are currently directly working with in a management and or consulting role include Iraqi oud virtuoso and composer Rahim AlHaj, Mexican post-traditional painter Jade Leyva, Brazilian - US musical fusionists Nation Beat, Puerto Rican singer-songwriter-activist Ani Cordero, Pan-Latin group Baracutanga, Ur Arts and Culture, Hope Sings, Peacing It Together and others. Avokado Artists also records artists aurally and visually, and helps to distribute their work through CDs, video, photography, printed publications including books, electronic media and various contextual materials. We have also worked with universities to create residencies for artists.
