    We are looking for help with placing furniture, hanging art, decorating, cleaning and preparing the house for occupancy. The house will come with a fully furnished kitchen so you will have to cook, clean up after and look out for yourselves.

    We are primarily seeking a couple or two singles who have experience with interior decoration, painting, woodwork, and general maintenance. Workawayers who have experience with, interior design/decorating, tile installation skills will be given preference. We need help assembling and placing furniture, hanging art, painting walls and woodwork and moving materials and furniture around. Most of the work will be in spurts and the rest of the time we hope our workawayers will enjoy life in one of the greatest cities in Brazil.

    We would also like to Host volunteers with skills like
    - Photography
    - Grafitti & Painting
    - Architects & Interior Designers
    - Recycling & Up-cycling of waste materials to make something creative
