Review for Taller Puertorriqueno Inc, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Taller is unique within the Philadelphia Latino, arts, and education communities. It is and has always had appeal and complete respect across generations, income, and neighborhoods. It is truly integral to the heritage of Puerto Ricans and the Latinos who have followed them in settling in the Philadelphia region. Situated in the heart of the PR community in Philly, Taller depends on a diverse base of support. It's worthy and it needs it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning about Latino artists about which I would not otherwise know. Great kids' programs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Institute a more professional fundraising operation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Childreen, teenagers, and adults of all ages revere it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Enthusiastic, informed, positive people. Everyone in the building is a natural educator.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

catalyze a cultural renaissance through all of the Latino community in Philadelphia that engages the region between NY and DC

Ways to make it better...

The space could accomodate more programs or exhibits. It's largely located in a large Philly row home with creative use of space.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

being in the business of arts, arts education, and serving communities that cannot support it financially, while the number of companies and philanthropies decline and are spread thinner.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
