The Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña's (ICP) mission is to investigate, conserve, promote, and spread Puerto Rican culture in all its diversity and complexity. The memory and promise of a culture, all the different levels, areas, ages, and community's interests create a set of lifestyles, customs, and artistic manifestations which identify us as a country. The ICP exists in order to preserve and divulge this knowledge, internationally spread our talent and to enrich the love of self.

Our traditions are not rigid museum objects, but live activities that are in constant renovation, and reappropriation, as new traditions develop. The respect towards diversity, towards the hybrid, the appropriated and the restated are also an essential part of this institution which actively searches for everyone's collaboration in a task that has to be shared hand-in-hand with its huge diversity.
