Parceleras Afrocaribeñas

Parceleras Afrocaribeñas are an intergenerational group of Afro-Caribbean women, community leaders, activists, and artists, based in San Anton, Puerto Rico. The group carry out various community, cultural, artistic, and ecological projects, promoting neighbourhood creativity, ancestral land and knowledge as a way to reflect on violence, race and migration. They are working together in the old public school in San Anton, which was shut down by the government in 2019. Combining artistic resistance, sustainable agriculture and alternative schooling with local talents, they are aiming to transform the empty structure into a community centre for art, culture and healing, alongside intergenerational education and community organising.
