Tucked into the Old Sixth Ward Historic District, MECA – which stands for Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts – resides in the old Dow School building located at 1900 Kane St. The community-based nonprofit organization boasts an impressive array of arts and cultural programming, including its renowned Dia De Los Muertos festival.
