Akuara Teatro (Worshop Theater Avellaneda) needs your financial support.

We are located in the heart of the "Art District" of Miami Dade, Miami, Florida: 4599 SW 75 Ave. Miami FL. 33155.

Akuara Teatro is reaching out to our community in a time of need in order to remain open. We are the only project of its kind in our district, where there is always something happening for our community. In the past we have always opened our doors to everyone. We have had book presentations, poetry readings, children’s theater, and many other cultural activities. Many times these activities have been done using our space at no cost to those doing it. We cannot keep helping others without being able to ask for help for our theatre. The high costs and maintenance of our theater and the high quality productions we offer is making it difficult to survive. We are currently facing a financial dilemma partially due to our high utility and rent costs. Please help us keep the arts alive at the Akuara Teatro.

Thanks for your time and consideration for our case.

People can pay with credit card,* or debit.**
