TALLER PUERTORRIQUENO INC

Taller Puertorriqueño uses art to promote development within its community and the Latino Diaspora and build bridges to the Greater Philadelphia region. Since its inception in 1974, Taller has been elevating and preserving Puerto Rican and Latino culture through arts and cultural programming. With its art-education programs, socially-conscious art exhibitions, book readings, and other events, Taller engages the public in dynamic discussions that stimulate the mind, create opportunities and make connections between people and communities. The 2016 opening of the 24,000+ square-foot El Corazón Cultural Center, solidifies Taller’s position as Pennsylvania’s largest Latino arts organization.

Community outreach has been central to Taller’s mission since its founding. Under the umbrella of our Visítenos (Visit Us) Outreach Program, we offer a range of arts-based programming for children, youth, adults, and seniors that foster an appreciation for art, cultural diversity, and promotes mutual understanding and respect. Our programs take place in our El Corazón Cultural Center, at community centers and schools across the greater Philadelphia region, and in collaboration with partnering organizations such as the Museum of Art and others.

Taller’s Art Education Programs for Children and Youth promote cultural understanding and community engagement through a focus on Puerto Rican/Latino art, history, and culture. We offer after-school programs during the school year, as well as a summer camp.

Our young artists engage with the important issues that shape their lives and their communities through creative expression and art-making under the guidance of experienced teaching artists and educators. We help kids succeed in school and in life, teaching them important lessons about resilience, responsibility, and mutual respect.
