MORE ON THE EVE OF ABOLITION A multimedia radical imaginary performance about the last day of the last prison in the US. This video was created for the Creative Capital Artist Retreat in June 2021.

ABOUT

AgitArte is an organization of working class artists and cultural organizers who work at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality and ideology. Through a praxis of cultural solidarity, creative process and popular education, we initiate and facilitate arts and cultural projects with grassroots communities that contest U.S. cultural hegemony and propose alternatives to existing systems of oppression. We do this in our creative work by centering the experiences of oppressed people in resistance through  interdisciplinary storytelling/media, and in our mutual solidarity, through trainings, workshops and running a physical space for educational programming in Santurce, Puerto Rico.

CULTURAL SOLIDARITY

We focus on cultural solidarity with individuals, communities, organizations, and their struggles rooted in the holistic understanding that humans require more than their material needs satisfied. Cultural work facilitates emotional as well as economic development.

POPULAR EDUCATION & AGITATION

We help to build the cultural infrastructure of grassroots struggles (using street theatre and political puppetry, etc) while also educating and agitating for the social, economic, and human rights of the diverse communities of the working class.

ARTISTS/CULTURAL WORKER DEVELOPMENT

Our work requires the artistic and educational development of cultural workers committed not only to their art but also to the social and economic progress of the people most involved in these struggles, especially those most impacted by the enduring inequalities in the United States and Puerto Rico.
