Maria Cherry Galette Rangel

New Orleans, LA
María Cherry Galette Rangel is a New Orleans based artist, cultural organizer, philanthropy strategist, and revolutionary focused on interrupting systemic bias in arts philanthropy, supporting underground arts ecologies, and support for queer and trans artists of color. As Co-Founder/Director of Mangos With Chili (2006-16), she developed the work of over 150 QTPOC artists, launched 80+ productions via national tours and local seasons of programming, initiated dialogue around racism in arts funding and practice, and ushered in a new era of possibility for QTPOC centered arts and culture. During her tenure at the National Performance Network (2015-17) she advanced the organization's development goals, radically increased NPN's analysis and practice of racial and social justice, and introduced the work of NPN to younger, more radical generations of artists and cultural workers. She leads with her lifelong commitment to making a place at the table for everyone, and ensuring that the work of under-represented artists is lifted up, recognized, and always possible.
