Description of the Program:
“Tu Arte Reconstruye Tour” was born after a year of work and community outreach where different artists joined the call of R.Evolución Latina.

After the passage of Hurricane Maria, RL’s team went to Puerto Rico to assist different communities with supplies and brought great joy through art.

In the summer of 2018, we supported 5 different projects of local artists who worked directly with the communities. Among those projects, was Emprende con Ritmo, Trotamundos, Chicle and Y No Había Luz. They took on the task of rebuilding the hearts of dozens of children and young people of Puerto Rico through art and music. From there arose the idea of ​​collaborating in this tour that will go to Peñuelas, Orocovis and Vega Alta.

Tu Arte Reconstruye Tour is a collaborative project in which around 25 children of the Emprende con Ritmo project, figure as main talents. It is a type of Christmas concert, where we collaborate Trotamundos, Chicle and Y No Habia Luz with the children of Emprende con Ritmo. We invite all Puerto Rican families to come together. They are free events where we will have the opportunity to celebrate how art and music unite us as a people.

The Tour will arrive on:

– December 2nd at the Public Square of Peñuelas, at 6PM
– December 16th at the Municipal Tarmac of Orocovis, at 3PM
– December 22nd at the Plazoleta de los Veteranos de Vega Alta, at 4PM

We continue to rebuild the communities of Puerto Rico through art and music.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator border_width=”3″][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Project #1: Emprende con Ritmo” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%239dbe49″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1528317619680{margin-top: 25px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”3061″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Location: Peñuelas, PR

Words from the Team

R.Evolución Latina arrived in Puerto Rico when we were still without electricity. In a democratic and participative way, they met with us artists and provoked a dialogue on how to reach communities with our art. We as artists are committed, we have brought our tools of telling stories to children and youth  allowing them to tell their story after the passage of Hurricane Maria. Thank you all in R.Evolución Latina for this support to our project and future.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator border_width=”3″][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Project #5 Misión EnTrenARTE” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%239dbe49″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1531856595154{margin-top: 25px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”3167″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Location: Vega Baja, PR

Words from the Team

We have seen R.Evolución Latina’s efforts and hard work since it’s foundation. To be able to collaborate with them in this project gives us a lot of hope that it’s possible to “rebuild” our island. Working with children from communities such as Los Naranjos provides local artists the opportunity to share their art, passion and knowledge in a close environment where each participant really feels their love and commitment. Each week is a new discovery, a new way to affirm:  “Tu Arte Reconstruye”.
