About Antonio Huerta:
Jose Antonio Huerta is a Charro, or practitioner of the traditional Mexican art of Charrería, which includes rope tricks and horse and cattle work. Huerta grew up in a rural village in Jalisco, Mexico, where his family made a living from farming and raising livestock. Huerta was tasked with the cattle and horse work and thus developed a passion for Charrería. After moving to the United States, Huerta was able to find an instructor and a community of Charros with whom he has been performing since around 2005. Huerta has performed in many local celebrations and competitions and often teaches Charrería workshops around the community. Huerta appreciates Charrería’s ability to create a sense of community and shared history. Beyond Charrería, Antonio is also a leader in producing and promoting Latino/a/x events and programs. He is the co-founder of Noche Cultural and Director of Comunidad y Herencia Cultural.

About Professional Practice: 

This workshop is part of Professional Practice, Lane Arts Council’s professional development program for artists and creatives. Participants continually learn together through an ongoing series of workshops. Workshops will feature presentations from regional and national experts, individual and group work, and assignments to be completed following the workshop.

This iteration of Professional Practice is in collaboration with Lane Arts Council’s Fiesta Cultural program. By presenting workshops in Spanish we hope to support the development of artists and cultural producers from within the Latino/a/x/e community, especially those not served by previous workshops presented in English.

This workshop is presented at no cost, but will offer an opportunity for pay-what-you-will contributions by attendees after each workshop.
