Happy new years FAVELissues readers!
As we kick of the 2017 posts, I wanted to begin by referencing a CNN publication “FAVELAGRAFIA” on the internal perspective of “favelados” in Rio de Janeiro. Taken with camera-phones, these are good visual narratives that challenge the paradigm giving viewers a glimpse of the day to day, the challenges, the opportunities and hope of different communities.
On this note, I also want to take this opportunity to share the link of FAVELARTE, a local organization in Morro da Providencia focusing on art, one of the first favelas in Rio de Janeiro. I first shared this link in my post ““Follow the Yellow Brick Road” :: Morro da Providencia’s Open Air Museum” which can access HERE.
