Through this program, we extend our resources as a nonprofit to grassroots and militant cultural organizing groups and collectives fighting for liberation in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Radical theater and puppetry collective, Papel Machete is a model  of this program.   Since its founding in 2006, Papel Machete has been a laboratory for disruptive storytelling projects using papier-mâché as a medium and varying forms of ancestral, pre-cinematic narrative forms like toy theater, cantastoria, shadow theater, table-top puppetry, humanettes, cut-outs, masks, and giant puppets. Through PEPP, we aim to build solidarity across struggles and redirect resources to unincorporated, independent groups, like Papel Machete, that contest dominant narratives through popular education.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type="normal"][vc_column_text]EL PROGRAMA DE EDUCACIÓN POPULAR Y PERFORMANCE (PEPP) apoya y desarrolla proyectos de educación popular para la agitación que utilizan teatro, títeres, artes visuales y música.
