About Barrio Collective
“Barrio Collective has been organizing different types of community events in Brooklyn since 2019. We’ve focused on opening up the space for Latinx creative entrepreneurs and performers who want to connect with a community where they feel they belong. We welcome new talent to our stage and motivate the local scene to keep growing and connecting. La Feria was the first event we organized in Summer of 2019 and our biggest to date has been Barrio Fest 2021, where we hosted over 15 performances, 10 vendors, tattoo artists and other art activities.
We are a group of artists trying to create spaces for people like us. We come from different backgrounds but we all ended up in the Barrio, that place that reminds us of home, where we can find like minded people hanging around a jukebox sharing a drink and a story or two.
We want to be a platform for new artists who haven’t found their space in a community yet. We want to be a launchpad for people’s passion. We want to let them know they can do it. We believe in the talent of our friends and we want them to believe in themselves. We want to create spaces for all of our friends, spaces where they can feel safe and protected by your community.
We are Barrio Collective,
Del Barrio, Pal’ Barrio”
