Bemba PR

Cultures of Resistance Awards — Puerto Rico
Bemba Puerto Rico (Bemba PR) is a Puerto Rican street art collective that encourages political participation through art. In the past, Bemba PR has trained young artists to create politically-engaged work in public spaces. Bemba PR’s Mayagüez Art District (MAD) project aims to transform an abandoned structure into a common mutual support space that will operate a social kitchen, offer educational workshops for children, and provide other community support programs. Bemba PR’s goal is to use urban design and community organization as ways to socialize resources for communities in need. 
Bemba PR received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) in 2022 and will use the award to  help build a rooftop garden in their MAD space.
