The Multicultural Conference exists to supplement what the students receive in the classroom. College is more than the study of required subject matter. It is an opportunity for students to encounter new ideas, and to be exposed to Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Musicians, and Community Activists.  

This year the event will open with San Antonio's new Poet Laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero. 

An original Musical by award winning writer, Amalia Ortiz will also be presenting. She has adapted the opera, Carmen, into a southside based musical soap opera of sorts.  

Successful and Award winning artists that have shown all over the world and collected in museums all over the country will be featured at the event. 

Vincent Valdez, who just returned from Berlin, was commissioned to produce a series for Brown University.  

Alex Rubio has been shown at SAMA, Blue Star, the University of the Incarnate Word, the Smithsonian. He also runs a successful art mosaic after school program for teenagers. 

Adriana Corral recently earned her M.F.A. from the University of Texas at Austin. She has had her installations shown in both the United States and Mexico.  

Daniela Riojas has recently been named San Antonio's best Photographer. She is also an award winning Music video director and original techno musician and poet. She is also a recent recipient of the Vermont Studio Residency program. 

Dr. Patricia Portales will also be part of a Book signing and reception for the book, "Latina/os and World War II", from the University of Texas Press. 

The goal is to inspire students to become active participants in their own education. Not only do they get to meet successful and creative people, they are also become aware of possibilities and pursuits they do not even know exist.
