Tripulantes is a fundraising campaign to repair and equip the Nave Cine Metro, a new cultural center in an abandoned cinema in the historic center of San Salvador, El Salvador.



We want to challenge what seems impossible in our society: that art and culture can be accessible to everyone.

Nave Cine Metro is located in an abandoned movie theater in the Historic Center of San Salvador, which, as of 2020, is being managed by the Asociación Cultural Azoro (ACA). ACA, along with other collectives and artists, is working to turn it into an adequate space for cultural development.
This is the Nave Cine Metro, a space of creative resistance where artists from different branches and generations already converge. Because we all deserve more spaces for cultural and artistic expression, join the trip and be a Crewmember.

Ways to thank you
At a time when the world is questioning what diversity is really worth, and social distancing is becoming more and more common in every corner of the planet, we believe it is essential to continue creating spaces for dialogue and encounters that allow us to connect with the deepest part of our humanity.

How will we invest the donations collected?
  • As a way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will allow for natural airflow throughout the Nave.This will also allow the place to have natural light inputs.
  • We will replace the damaged ceiling with a thermoacoustic structure that includes domes and skylights.
  • We will renovate ceiling tiles.
  • In keeping our cultural agenda active in downtown San Salvador, inside and outside La Nave.
  • In renovating the bathrooms.
  • In adapting space for dressing rooms for artists.
And if we manage to raise enough funds, we will:
  • Install an elevator to make access to La Nave more inclusive.
  • Renew external and internal doors of the entire space.
  • Equip the stage with lights, the structure to perform aerial acrobatics, and bleacher modules.
Who are we?
We are a group of artists, communicators, cultural managers, educators and creative communities that continue to resist despite the constant job insecurity in the sector and the closure of cultural spaces. We persist with optimism, promoting the emergence and take-off of this independent cultural space.

Nave Cine Metro is a project of Asociación Cultural Azoro (ACA), a non-profit organization legally constituted in El Salvador in 2015. La Cachada Teatro and Teatro del Azoro are also part of their projects.

We are transforming what used to be a movie theater in downtown San Salvador into a safe art house, where we can coexist freely and recognize one another, reconstruct and rethink our identity, thus reclaiming our role in our own history.

The first $65 thousand dollars raised will be invested in the most basic repairs to the building and in maintaining a permanent cultural program. Priority will be given to replacing the severely damaged roof and suspended ceiling, while taking advantage of the opportunity to facilitate more air circulation and more natural light, in this way we will be also increasing biosecurity measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Then, we will adapt the space to make it accessible to persons with reduced mobility. In terms of cultural production, these contributions will cover a portion of the costs related to the execution of cultural planning, such as activities that range from covering management fees and paying artists, to partially covering the acquisition of audio and lighting equipment for performing arts.
