Living in a multicultural city, but historically marked by sharp socio-economic inequalities, leads to development of strategies to combat social stratification and exclusion. Saramandaia is a low-income, majority black community located within noble neighborhoods in Salvador.
Like many other similar communities, it is characterized by abject poverty and insufficient assistance by governmental bodies, and consequently resulting in high rates of violence. In this context, 3 residents have elaborated strategies that seek to reclaim the historical identity of its residents.
Despite facing multiple barriers, they founded the conscious art project in 2013, an initiative that has been transforming the community's reality. By providing assistance to young men and women, the project aims to transform their unfavorable conditions of socio-economic exclusion.
On this tour, you'll visit this important social project that seeks to transform their lives through arts and sports, utilizing graffiti, capoeira, boxing and percussion in organized courses and workshops. This tour promotes interaction and participation between our tour guests, the students and members of the community. Experience the transforming power of these initiatives.
Please note: we are sensitive to the issues and concerns surrounding favelas, and we understand that this tour may not be suitable for everyone. We strongly believe that the purpose of this tour is for educational reasons alone and allows for a better understanding of Brazilian life inside a favela.
