Art can provide a crucial service for movements by popularizing ideas. That’s what motivates AgitArte, an organization of working-class artists and cultural organizers, as its members create, educate, and envision a free and sovereign Puerto Rico.

AgitArte is an organization of working-class artists and cultural organizers who use cultural work to act in solidarity with grassroots struggles against oppression and to construct a new society. Against present dominant ideologies, they are using their pens, brushes, and other tools to popularize justice and a vision of a liberated future.

In addition to artists, AgitArte is composed of designers, puppeteers, and musicians who work at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Some of their most prominent projects include a 170-foot long painted scroll that depicts the history of Puerto Rico, a poster campaign to defend public education, a community theater that puts on educational performances, and other workshops. The organization is also an integral part of the mutual aid network in Puerto Rico that started after Hurricane Maria of 2017.

According to the AgitArte, cultural organizing and art have always been at the center of radical transformational change. The organization is providing critical means for Puerto Ricans to express their struggles, envision the future, and construct paths to liberation.
