Main activities of the project

Giras de falação

“O Quilombo Catucá se tornou um espaço com reconhecimento e autonomia para promover discussões que ainda eram pensadas com muito tabu na comunidade do entorno e na sociedade em geral”

Body, mind and spirit in a constant process of transformation, relationships and rhythms.

Territorial modifications favor the long-term well-being of community agents in different localities, where access to cultural, educational, political, artistic and economic development formed part of the socioeconomic foundations of the territory.

The joy of the people, actions, expressions, art and culture were the foundations of revolutionary movements and struggles and belonging and ancestral legacy.


Transformations of the territory

The project highlights the importance of peripheral bodies in access to other forms of communication and information, because in this exchange of knowledge, teaching and learning are transformative and constant for community agents, with "the body as the first source of knowledge and producer of knowledge"
