Pitirre Proyectos is a non-profit organization incorporated in 2010 in Puerto Rico as an initiative of Gretchen Ruiz Ramos and her interest to support the artistic community of Puerto Rico. Gretchen is an arts specialist, photographer and educator with over twenty years of experience working with the arts and culture of the Island. In the past ten years, Pitirre Proyectos has created and produced a series of art exhibitions, workshops, conferences, artist talks and publications.
After Hurricane María impacted Puerto Rico on September 2017., Pitirre Proyectos created the fundraising campaign, Post-María Relief, Off the Grid PR, with the purpose of distributing purified water and emergency kits with solar powered items for survivors, raising $15,000 and assisting hundreds of families around the island.
