Papel Machete’s 13th Anniversary Show

To support the creation of new work by Papel Machete that will be presented during our 13th anniversary celebration and the annual Titeretada Puppetry Festival in March/April 2019. Each year, we organize and present both of these events with very limited funding/support to pay our artists. If awarded, we will use the NFA Puerto Rico Artist Grant to pay Papel Machete artists for their creative labor. Since Hurricane María, our people are still struggling to find paid work. We hope to remedy this by securing grants like this one and using the funds to pay artists.
