ART & MEDIA | ARTE Y MEDIA

AgitArte has been slowly building a network of working class artists, cultural workers and media makers who create art responding to the political moment and providing alternative narratives to mainstream media which often leaves out critical stories and perspectives from poor and working class communities. Since January, we have been producing short rapid response videos reporting on the political climate in Puerto Rico, covering everything from the earthquakes and homelessness to the pandemic and mutual aid efforts throughout the archipelago. 

This program also includes publication projects created/co-created by AgitArte. Publications enable us to share the agitational work of AgitArte and Papel Machete with broader audiences. Since 2016 we have produced several publications and popular education materials that contest dominant narratives and share stories and political analysis about issues oppressing working class people, including the book, platform and now podcast When We Fight, We Win!, co-created with Greg Jobin-Leeds.

In 2019, we launched the When We Fight, We Win!: The Podcast and the second season begins December 3rd, available everywhere you get your podcasts, and directly from the When We Fight, We Win! website.
