Cultural Centers — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
notes go here...
Casa de la Cultura Oaxaqueña • Cultural Center, Movies • (C)
Housed in a lovingly restored late 18th century ex-convent on the southeastern edge of the Centro Histórico, the Center -- dedicated to preservation and promulgation of Oaxaca's cultural heritage -- has almost daily cultural events like art and photography exhibits, dance, movement and performance art, concerts, film screenings, plays, etc... Look for their fliers around town at many cafés and other public places with monthly schedules (Spanish only) of events. A lot of these events are free and -- although tourists are welcome -- they're put on for the benefit of locals. Next door to the Templo y Convento de los Siete Príncipes — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca.
