PEPATIÁN is a South Bronx-based organization dedicated to creating, producing and supporting contemporary multi-disciplinary art by Latino and Bronx-based artists.

“This organization provides essential performance opportunities and programming in the South Bronx. Courageous programs and outstanding artists make the organization stand out. Its target audiences are those most in need of vibrant and excellent storytelling. Operating on a shoestring, Pepatián fills in gaps that address gender, race, sexuality, and healthy communication for enthusiastic audiences and participants.”
