Archivos del Caribe is an arts and culture organization founded on January 2020 by Leticia Berdecia. With the purpose to explore how history is narrated through archival methodologies and art disciplines, Archivos del Caribe seeks to document the Caribbean antiquities and contemporaneity in order to provide a greater dimensionality of this region for the cultural enrichment of present and future generations.
Because we understand the concept of ‘archive’ as a point of reference for the development of cultural initiatives, we integrate the arts and philosophy as a response to the point of reference that our same archive provides, leading space for the practice of a critical culture.
Our mission is to respond to world tendencies and reach people in a local and international level. As well as taking part in contemporary and modern cultural debates.
Archivos del Caribe envisions a cultural center that serves as a physical archive, for the preservation of the Artistic, Cultural and Historical Memory of Puerto Rico and the Antillean Caribbean region.
This organization and its members are dedicated to create a space for a dignified and diversified representation of the Arts and Culture of the Antillean Caribbean region. Archivos del Caribe has zero tolerance for racism, misogyny, homophobia, cultural appropriation, ableism, transphobia, and all other forms of injustice and oppression within and outside the organization.
We provides a glossary with antiracist and decolonial terms — it is not exhaustive but rather a starting point. To unlearn and to transform, we must constantly move forward with generosity, love, and humility.
