Mission Statement

Teatro del Pueblo's mission as a non-profit organization is to promote cultural pride in the Latino community, to develop and support Latino talent, while educating the community at large about Latino culture and promoting cultural diversity in the arts.

Description

Teatro del Pueblo was founded in 1992 by a group of Latino artists and community members on the West Side of St. Paul, in the heart of the city's Latino population. One incident called upon Teatro to create a theatrical presentation addressing a local school shooting. Several in the community were leery about our plan, but after the presentation, many of the people became our most ardent supporters. This event sealed Teatro's fate as a forum for the community's marginalized voices and an advocate for social change. During the past fifteen years, Teatro has staged over 50 plays, developed collaborative relationships with a variety of organizations, and toured to over 50 schools throughout the Upper Midwest.
