YAYA Arts Center Opens, Teatro Sin Fronteras, MAAFA Healing

Craig Morse

This week on Inside the Arts, it is official, YAYA —Young Aspirations, Young Artists, Inc. — opens its new arts center in Central City. We talk with YAYA's new chief executive officer Gene Meneray.

Then, Teatro Sin Fronteras /Theater Without Borders, a series of movable performances, celebrates the contributions of the city's Latino community to the rebirth of New Orleans as the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches.

And we round out with the Ashe Cultural Arts Center's 15th Annual MAAFA Commemoration, a sacred ceremony remembering ancestors of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
