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.
We look for anyone with passion for Human Rights and cultural diversity. If you have experience with art production or videography/photography, let us know it. However, any person with any talent is welcome, and if you haven’t discovered your talent yet, this program will be an amazing opportunity for you either. We expect that all the volunteers with us in the communication, creative and logistic teams. There is no required skill for any team.
Volunteers will stay in volunteers homes. All rooms are shared and for those who prefers to be in a room with a same gender one, it's totally possible. In the case of couples, please let us know in advance. In addition, the accommodations have good access to public transportation. Breakfast will be provided by the house. It is important to point out that all the houses are in cozy surroundings. All the volunteer will be in the same house.
