New Guadalupe Executive Director is ‘Right Person at the Right Time’

After more than a month without steady leadership, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center has appointed Cristina Ballí as its new executive director. With 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, a decade in Latino arts programming and administration, and a recent tenure with Austin-based Texas Folklife under her belt, Ballí is poised to breathe new life into the Guadalupe’s programming.
