The Casa de Cultura Gaby Brimmer is an important part of the network of community and cultural centers operated by the Benito Juárez Alcaldía. It’s named for one of the most important advocates for the rights of people with disabilities in Mexican history.
The center is important to all of the people of the southeast of Benito Juárez. It’s a center focused on creative and communicative arts. Workshops are in dance, yoga, visual arts and, interestingly, podcast production. There’s a special focus on the senior community area, and they’ll be seen frequently dancing in or around the center.
Within the broader Portales area, itself well-known for antiquities and arts, the Casa de Cultura Gaby Brimmer hosts frequent exhibitions and presentations. These are curated from within the Center’s own workshops, and by curators bringing in work from the rest of the city, country, and from abroad.
