Marta V. Martínez, Executive Director, RHODE ISLAND LATINO ARTS

Leading Ladies 2024


From uplifting the Latino community in the early ‘90s to listening to and documenting lived histories, Marta’s work has impacted generations. Her oral history project was adapted into a play staged by an all-Latino cast at Trinity Repertory, and the RHODE ISLAND LATINO ARTS director received the 2023 Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts. “We, as Latinos, rarely are given the opportunity to share our history and to tell our story; our stories are ours and they are so valuable.”
