  • Description


    Hi, my name is Vinícius and I'm the coordinator of an international project which seeks to promote the Human Rights rights through artistic and cultural interventions focused on Race, Gender and Sexuality. Our goal is to produce urban interventions that dialogue with society about our lives as LGBTQIA+, black or woman. The project is itinerant and It has been in cities such as Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte and Campina Grande. And now, we will be working for this semester in Brasilia.

    The volunteer program last at least one full week, where our volunteers will have workshops about Brazilian Race, Gender and Sexuality issues and they will work in the production of our urban interventions with a team composed by local artists. Regardless of your sexuality, gender, race and religion, everyone who supports LGBTQIA+ rights, equity of gender and support movements anti-racist will be welcome.

    We will welcome up to 4 international volunteers for each intervention production which last at least one week. Our volunteers will learn how to create an intervention, however they will mainly learn about important topics of this community such as their social demands and about Brazilian LGBTQI+ culture.

    Brasília has been in a cultural scene boom. We have created a solid underground artistic scene promoted by young folks from all around the country. Brasilia is home for one of the most active queer communities beside the experimental artists who has been broken barriers and promoting the art in any corner of the city. As the capital of Brazil, you will find a political active society with important debates.
