Yo Soy LOLA (Latinas Orgullosas de Las Artes) is a movement to reclaim the Latina narrative through artistic platforms, including a yearly thought-provoking multimedia experience every October showcasing Latinas in the arts via spoken word, acting, dance, music, film, and more.

Our mission is to raise awareness of the multidimensional Latina experience and build a platform that unites Latinas to tell our stories, change our narrative, and give back to our communities.

EVERYONE is welcome to LOLA events. Our gala net proceeds fund scholarships to be given to Latinx youth pursuing higher education in the arts with goals that directly impact their communities. Tax-deductible donations are also welcome.

Reserve a FREE ticket today!This is an all ages event. For more announcements and info regarding the event and LOLA Week visit our website yosoylola.com.
