Against all odds, the art scene in Puerto Rico has strengthened and diversified over the past several years, on the backs of artists, curators, educators and others who take on the responsibility of cultural development in the absence of government support and market viability. Beta-Local has been a tool and a resource for many, serving as a dynamic and flexible platform for critical thinking and experimental agency. Thousands have benefited from our grant and fellowship programs, library, public programming, publications and exhibitions.
Hurricanes Irma and María have dramatically exacerbated the vulnerabilities caused by Puerto Rico’s decade-strong economic depression. As such, Beta-Local has decided to focus their energies on developing an emergency fund destined to cultural workers and their communities. Beta-Local is committed to devoting all its resources and tools to guarantee that these individuals and the results of their efforts don’t disappear, and that their recovery contributes to the sustainable transformation of the island.
This emergency fund is possible thanks to the contributions of the Andy Warhol Foundation, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Hispanic Federation and the solidarity of individuals throughout the world.
