Suport Loudreaders

LOUDREADERS is a platform of public architectural pedagogy and trade school that explores spatial and land practices and imaginaries at the intersection of society, culture, and ecology. We are a planetary school with roots in the Caribbean, and we engage through networks of intellectual solidarity the many fields, lands, territories, narratives, journeys, and imaginations that make and remake a dynamic, historic, and evolving geopolitical network of landscapes and peoples.

Since our foundation in 2020, we have offered ‘how-to’ workshops and loudreading sessions, as well as the study of critical and affirmative thinking by leading designers, artists, architects, spatial practitioners, activists, philosophers, creative writers, and scholars. We believe that everyone deserves access to the tools and knowledge they need to create a more just and equitable world, and we are committed to providing a space where people from all backgrounds can come together to learn, share, and create.

We are currently crowdfunding to raise $150,000 to support the continuous and sustainable growth of this network of intellectual solidarity. The funds raised will be used to:

  • With your donation, we can expand our programming and offer more workshops, sessions, and publications. This will allow us to reach more people and share our work with a wider audience.
  • We can commission works to support our growing community.
  • We can create more resources and materials to share. Our publications will be available free of cost online.
  • We can continue developing the program and infrastructure of the first Trans-Caribbean Trade School of Architecture and Criticial Spatial Practices.
  • We can continue offering programming of planetary impact. 

We’ve raised over $200,000 this year from institutional grants and individuals. With that funding we Submitted our 501(c)3 application and received official non-profit status, published the hardcover edition of A Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education, and developed the pilot of an on-site Trans-Caribbean School in Puerto Rico.
