    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The experience would be quite diverse. For Paraty is already a city with a very rich cultural diversity, with indigenous villages, quilombos and communities of fishermen besides the historical center of the colonial era of Brazil.

    The neighborhood where I live is a rural neighborhood but near the center of the city and here already has another dynamics. With plantations, rivers, waterfalls. So in terms of culture and landscape would be very rich. Apart from having at home a collection of books of film, photography, Brazilian popular culture that can generate good readings.

  • Help


    I would like help with the garden, specifically build a hedge. Some small repairs on the house, such as arranging a shower and lamps, drill the wall to lay shelves. Help organize a garden.

    If possible stay with my son a little while I go to the market or other things in the city.

    As an artist I would also be interested to receive other artists to exchange experiences.
