Proyecto Algarabía is a global youth movement-building project whose aim is to create platforms that empower youth through intercommunity dialogues, oral history, oral expression, art and theater in local communities in order to stimulate the creation of blueprints for local and regional social justice. Using critical consciousness as a formative method, we foster collaborative leadership to address local community issues and their global impact. We serve youth living within historically marginalized communities and socially excluding conditions in Latin America, the Caribbean and our Diaspora in the world.
To create a global solidarity network and platform for historically marginalized youth to be empowered and participate critically in community, regional and global politics and culture through the use of art and literacy- in Latin America, the Caribbean and our diaspora in the world.
Proyecto Algarabía serves as an interdisciplinary platform for youth base building and the development of critical consciousness. Our cross-border agenda partners with small collectives and organizations to enhance local organizing and programming with tools based in the arts and literacy.
Help us continue to build a global youth solidarity network! Connect your collectives, projects and organizations with others as we continue to build a cross-border youth movement.
Educational institutions in the DR have provided little access to a quality education serving the majority of youth living in barrios and farming communities. We work in the southern province of the island with youth living in both rural and urban communities where we develop art and literacy community-based programming, resulting in reflections, debates and blueprints for community transformation.
The politically turbulent situation in México, demands that youth have spaces for political formation and participation in order to be active participants in the countries’ social transformation. Our work in México supports the political involvement and formative process of youth involved with social and community projects- through media, music and the arts.
The increased levels of policing and criminalization of black and brown youth, young women and undocumented families has pulled focus towards the need for critical alternatives for these communities. Working with young women in juvenile hall, we provide a critically engaging and in-depth arts and literacy curriculum that allows the imagination to create alternatives beyond walls and bars.
