La Sala supports a culture of health and well-being; it is a comfortable place to gather. It is home to yoga, kids ballet, music and expressive arts, a garden, and a nonprofit program, Sala Reach, which provides free classes and events.
Across many languages, sala refers to special places; the word appears in languages in Asia, Europe, and Africa. It corresponds to the Sanskrit word śālā – a shelter or gathering place. In Spanish, sala means living room or dance hall. These many meanings express the intention for this space.
Questa Creative Council seeks to strengthen and sustain community enrichment and economic opportunities through arts, culture, history, and education.
We will enhance opportunities to build cooperation among artists, artisans, cultural creatives and community members. We will help build a beneficial future while nurturing, sustaining or reviving traditional and contemporary creative pursuits.
This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works.
