San Antonio has a rich history of telling our stories and sharing our culture. Art Everywhere celebrates art and artists by incorporating this art into the public realm. It adds vibrancy and a more global quality of life, promotes the creative economy, and acts as a magnet for businesses, residents, visitors, and foot traffic.

Art Everywhere makes downtown beautiful and playful – but now has even greater depth; it puts local artists (small-business people) back to work and lends downtown businesses a bit of coolness.

The Conjunto Heritage Taller recognizes the positive impact of music on our aging community and we foster “creative aging”, by providing music programming that supports and enriches adults across the aging spectrum! Annually, with the support of the Texas Commission on the Arts, we hold at least two free senior programs consisting of 8-week long introductory accordion classes, held at different San Antonio senior centers, taught by one of our master accordion instructors.

Primary outcomes of our senior programs can be seen among our students, who develop an understanding of the accordion or bajo sexto and eventually perform in the senior recital. We have observed that students gain self-confidence and pride when they master tunes they have worked hard to learn, and when they go on stage and receive a positive audience response.

Students participating in our senior programs exhibit positive results with added benefits of warding off depression and loneliness. CHT senior programs are facilitated in predominantly low-income, inner-city senior centers with the goal of positively serving our communities through creative aging!

Seniors Only.
