In August of 2023, Trucha put out a call to local artists for an opportunity to participate in the Movimiento Screen Printing Fellowship in collaboration with Tree Haus Creative Studio. The goal of the fellowship has been to provide local artists with the resources and support to create new, socially engaged screen printed works or projects, with a studio space located in McAllen, Texas. The participating artists in this exhibition, Cielo Zuñiga, Savannah Muñoz and Ruby Delgado, have grown as printmakers under the guidance of Tree Haus Creative Studios in a one-month program that took place from October to November of 2023.
The Movimiento Screen Printing Fellowship is just one of the many collaborations Trucha has partnered to support local University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) and South Texas College (STC) students wishing to continue their art education, in a hands-on environment, with a wide range of resources and professional equipment.
Based in McAllen, Texas, Trucha is the only multimedia nonprofit organization to exist in the Rio Grande Valley, operating as a socially active entertainment and publishing organization. Since 2021, their goal has been to uplift the stories, culture, and social movements of migrant and queer communities in the Rio Grande Valley. Today, their mission continues through social activism, journalism, documentaries, providing opportunities for local artists, partnerships with community organizations, and creating a network of storytellers in the Rio Grande Valley.
