Staff and Board Members

Taller Puertorriqueño is the gateway to Latinx Philadelphia, promoting and developing Latinx culture through its public exhibitions, education programs for children and youth, and extensive outreach programs at schools and community centers across the city. We believe that embracing and expressing our cultural heritage is central to community empowerment.
