Review for La Peña Cultural Center, Inc., Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There is no place like La Peña in the whole Bay Area, or maybe in the US for that matter. This is where one gets to meet all kinds of people, very young to very old, from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. If you want to experience a community that comes together to support its artists, and the artists who give back their best, then La Peña is the place. Music, Dance, Poetry, Film, Theater, Community Organizing, A celebration, a Memorial, an Exhibit, Hip Hop, Jazz, you name it, La Peña's got it, with the added benefit that you know you're supporting an organization that truly cares about the planet and its inhabitants.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The quality of the show, down to earth and yet top notch artistry; the space; the artwork on the walls; the history of it; the cafe where I met with my friends, and the PRICE! You can't get such a great show for so cheap! I don't know how they do it!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warm, generous, inviting, friendly, funny, and oh so interesting!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Revamp its technical equipments, the sound, the lights, bringing into the 21st century. It is amazing what they can produce such quality programs given such a limited budget.

Ways to make it better...

I could use my credit card; but they're working on that one, they said.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
