The Brazilian Arts Foundation, established in 2001, is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing cultural education and building community through the preservation and sharing of Brazilian culture. In 2006, the organization established a cultural center in order to further develop and expand its program and performance offerings. Located in the historic Houston Heights, the center provides a home in which the Foundation offers the majority of its classes and workshops, as well as hosts events and educational programs.
