Favela painting project



Os artistas Jeroen Koolhaas e Dre Urhahn, naturais dos Países Baixos, tem vindo a promover diversas intervenções artísticas nas favelas do Rio de Janeiro desde 2005. Agora resolveram lançar um grande projecto de cariz comunitário com vista a rebocar a pintar uma grande extensão de encosta construída, fazendo da arte um ponto de partida para estimular o diálogo e a reflexão sobre as dinâmicas sociais que ali habitam. Chama-se Favela Painting e está a recolher apoios no Kickstarter. Via Designboom.



It is our dream to paint an entire hillside favela and create a social artwork of epic size. Spreading pride and optimism, creating jobs and attracting attention in a positive way. Local people will be hired and trained, hundreds of houses plastered and painted, an entire neighborhood mobilized to transform their own community into an artwork that will become a monument for the people in the favelas of Brazil. The Favela Painting organization is independent, works with a local base and hopes to finance this amazing project through crowdfunding, making it a true community project! Please help to realize this dream!
