ABOUT TALLER BORICUA

All programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislator. They are supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council, the Consejo Grafico, the Puerto Rican Workshop Inc. and contributors

Who We Are

Taller Boricua was established in 1970 in East Harlem as a non-profit arts organization.Taller Boricua/Puerto Rican Workshop Inc. has expanded into a multicultural institution by providing a variety of programs that stimulate the social, cultural, and economic development of the community. El Taller’s workshops offer artists the opportunity to share ideas and inspiration with colleagues and to enhance productivity and collaboration with other non-profit organizations, schools, artists, public service providers, private corporations, and the community. El Taller Boricua/Puerto Rican Workshop has evolved into a highly respected community arts organization that continues to be a proactive resource for the promotion of the arts.

Taller Boricua Archives

Taller Boricua Archives are currently undergoing a complete reorganizing effort. Because of its 44 year history of exhibiting and promoting artist in El Barrio of East Harlem NY, the time has arrived for a renewed effort to bring together the massive libraries of printed media, photographs, videos, historic artifacts and digital content that are currently scattered through out the digitized memes. The Taller would like to thank all those who were in one way or another involved in past efforts to keep such an important cultural venture continually functioning. Whether it was the web designers, the email campaigners, office staffers or interns, we thank you all and its is in your name that we continue to improve our efforts to finally make available a culturally rich database that will not just benefit the Taller, but also benefit the hundred’s of artist who have honored the Taller Boricua  with their creative and inspiring work.

Following the mission of El Taller Boricua, the artist files focus on contemporary art by artists of all ethnicities. El Taller Boricua accepts all unsolicited artist file materials. The majority of its archives and research materials document the history of El Taller Boricua and the Nuyorican artistic community.

Taller Boricua YouTube

The Taller Boricua YouTube channel will be activated in November 2014.  It’s key feature  will  be a dedicated playlist that will simplify the Taller’s content searching capabilities by categorizing the current massive YouTube library posted through out the years by so many of Taller Boricua’s friends and collaborators. By categorizing areas of specific interest and prioritizing its importance, the channel will serve as a research adjunct to Taller Boricus’s reset  archival project . Please feel free to notify us if you so happen to find an old posted Taller related video lost deep inside the YouTube cloud servers.

A video like the one below will be categorized under the playlist titled “SALSA WEDNESDAYS
