Proytecto Algarabía in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the United States

Proyecto Algarabía is a global, nomadic collective of educators, organizers and artists that use popular education and decolonial pedagogy to create sustainable tools for the empowerment and political participation of youth within their communities and across borders. Through the use of literary tools, oral history and the local arts and cultural practices, we work with collectives and youth who live in historically and currently marginalized, criminalized or displaced communities in Latin America, the Caribbean and our diaspora through the world.

Director Solymar Solá Negrón serves on SPOHP’s Advisory Board and provides guidance for the development of LDAP. Proyecto was the official philanthropy of UF’s Hispanic Heritage Month 2013.
