2019 3Arts Award Recipient,

2019 MacArthur International Exchange SRBCC Artist with Bomba con Buya


This year SRBCC is raising funds for its 2020 MacArthur International Connections Exchange.

SRBCC has been awarded the MacArthur International Connections Grant to send Chicago’s own Bomba con Buya in June 2020 to Spain & bring back Barcelona’s Mancha E’ Plátano to Chicago in September 2020.

With this grant, we take on the expectation to raise any additional funds necessary to make this exchange successful –covering costs of travel, meals, free shows for the community and the recording of a new song in collaboration with both artist groups. If you would like to donate to this specific initiative, please join our Facebook End-of-Year Fundraiser here.

All donations are tax-deductible. The sustainability of Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center depends greatly on the generosity of our individual donors. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center. Thank you for your crucial support of our work for professional artists, our youth, and our community.
