My friend Anna van der Heijden and I were part of this incredible community event “Um Bonde para Santa Teresa” in Rio de Janeiro last Saturday, Aug 26. We were most impressed how the event went in true community spirit. The artist who inspired the project Andrea Aires Imbiriba after giving an impressive speech about the spirit of community art, kept in the background and everybody who was willing could mix cement, climb the scaffold and glue a mosaic on the wall, get water for cleaning the mosaic, dance or just watch.
Please enjoy a glimpse of the spirit in the video, please click on the link below!
