RAY | RAYO | RAYON is an interdisciplinary and experimental art education program under development in the insular and continental Caribbean, with the relationship between art and emancipation as its main axis. It is promoted by the curator Yina Jiménez Suriel, the artist Beatriz Santiago Muñóz and the artist and researcher Víctor Torres Rodríguez, and produced by the Free Time Society, an artists’ cooperative based in Puerto Rico. RAY | RAYO | RAYON aims to generate, by 2024, an educational program that promotes the support structures necessary for the flourishing of artists and artistic practices/processes in the region, offering other options beyond the institutional academic and museum spaces that individualize professionalization and ignore the collective and communal potential for emancipation that is part of the region’s history. To this end, RAY | RAYO | RAYON will convene a series of five meetings throughout 2023 to conceptualize the shape of such a program and to gather information on what is working in the field of pedagogy and the arts in the Caribbean. At the same time, RAY | RAYO | RAYON seeks to expand its institutional alliances in order to manage the resources that will allow the program to exist in 2024. RAY | RAYO | RAYON, an Arts Education Program from the Caribbean.
