Ana Luiza Gomes Pereira

Researcher/Designer

"Design is an instrument to tell stories, connect people, and to translate the everyday."

In Project Andarilha from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, graphic designer Ana Luiza Gomes Pereira dedicates herself to researching Brazil's traditional art and culture and in doing so, she launched a project called Andarilha, a content research and curating online platform that aims to register, preserve, and disseminate the stories of rural people who create inspired-by Brazilian culture. The goal is to identify modern "Andarilhas", artists who are inspired by their own rode's life story, those who look at culture and heritage with very contemporary eyes. Having herself lived all over rural Brazil, she believes these people and their stories have the ability to unite creative manifestations from all corners of Brazil.
