Mano a Mano got a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support Mexican immigrant artists. The first stage of our project is to create a directory, including a minimum of 150 artists in our 5 areas of activity: music, dance, visual arts, verbal arts and ritual and culinary arts. We are fans of cloud computing and use Salesforce.com and Google Apps. We are hoping to link create a portal on our site that can be populated with entries in our database through a simple template. We hope to give artists - many who may have no other access - the opportunity to create and modify a personal webpage. Our goal is to help artists professionalize and ultimately find gainful employment in their creative fields.
If you can volunteer to help us create our artists' portal, we want to hear from you.
