Its programs are designed to promote creativity and to motivate civic dialogue.(The Yerbabruja is a medicinal plant from Puerto Rico that flourishes in the harshest of conditions). We create and produce experimental theater & use theater and other art forms to increase and encourage the understanding among people of different cultural backgrounds; provide opportunities to minority artists through performance, arts and workshops to develop their works. We provide knowledge and appreciation for the arts.
