Good news everyone! Rancho Alegre Radio has been selected as a finalist for the WeWork Creator Awards!
This international endeavor is sponsored by WeWork, with awards given around the world in awards shows in Austin, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Mexico City and New York City. Earlier this year, WeWork committed $20 million in grants to recipients around the globe "to recognize and reward those who are thinking in new ways, building fresh projects, and achieving real change." As you can imagine, it's an honor for us to be considered finalists alongside so many remarkable entrepreneurs and fellow nonprofit organizations who are also doing great work. And big time thanks to Rancho Alegre cohort Sarah Rucker of Full Gallop Arts for the heads up.
The awards are given out Tuesday June 27th at ACL Live here in Austin. Wish us luck as we represent Tejano and Conjunto music in this great opportunity in an international program!
