The organization's primary purpose is to preserve, develop and promote Puerto Rican arts and culture and the quality representation of other Latino cultural expressions and our common roots. Taller is committed to work that promotes social justice and equality by; serving as an educational vehicle in the advancement of the Puerto Rican/Latino community's pursuit of cultural identity and reaffirmation; striving for the continued development of the Puerto Rican/Latino community through the arts; preserving and promoting the contributions and accomplishments of all Puerto Rican communities and support the work of Latino/a artists of all disciplines; and supporting increased understanding and appreciation of other cultures within the wider community.
Referred to as the "Cultural Heart of Latino Philadelphia", Taller Puertorriqueño was established in 1974 by local Puerto Rican artists and community activists as a multidisciplinary community arts and cultural organization. Taller is a nonprofit organization that offers cultural services to children, youth and their families in the Philadelphia Latino Community by sharing the wealth of accumulated cultural knowledge and promoting community pride. Situated in the largest Puerto Rican/Latino neighborhood of Philadelphia, the Northwest Kensington area, and located at the entrance of the Golden (El Centro de Oro) commercial District, Taller stands as a beacon of the community's cultural expression and reaffirmation. With a current budget of close to $1.3 million and a permanent staff of 18, (13 full-time, 5 part-time) and 60 volunteers, Taller has developed to become one of the most respected and well-known Latino community based organizations in the region.
