Our Virtual Fieldtrips
Guided School Tours & Workshops at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes offer students the opportunity to explore the history, culture, and contributions of Mexican and Mexican Americans in Southern California. Tours and workshops explore themes rooted in identity, social justice, health, nutrition, community, and civil rights.
Culturally relevant topics, engaging prompts, and interactive workshops encourage students to uncover the multilayers of Mexican, Mexican-American, individual, and collective identity.
