Project Yemanja

PRESENTED ON SEP 27, 2016
IN BEXHILL-ON-SEA @ VOL 4

"It was really through there workshop of the simple, almost futile, act of making paper flowers that we realized the potential for bringing diverse groups together." 

in Project Yemanja from PechaKucha night Bexhill-on-Sea, Vol. 4, Esther Springett speaks about a fascinating effort that sprung from a seemingly misplaced Brazilian festival in Camden called Santido, which aimed to connect sights, smells, sounds and senses of Brazil to Camden. Coinciding with the Rio Olympics this project centered on water and the act of sending well wishes in the form of paper flowers down rivers and out to sea. Hear the story of how hundreds of these paper flowers we're made in Camden and scenically sailed up the regents canal.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, February 6th, 2017.

"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.
