Be part of the largest Favela Painting ever

We recieved this plea to help create the largest ever Favela Painting project in Brazil! Help them realize their dreams for the community of Vila Cruzeiro!

 

'Visual beautification, job creation and positive attention boost pride and self esteem and help bridge social gaps in a creative and artful manner. The projects create a voice for the inhabitants, influence public opinion and media, and can help to change perception and remove stigma.' (Taken from the Favela Painting Kickstarter site)

 

Their plea!:

' After our 2 year Philly Painting project, which we've executed together with the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia, we decided to pursue our dream and return to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

We are ready to create the largest artwork ever by painting an entire hill of favela's together with the local youth.

Instead of applying for art, cultural or other government funding we ask you, the crowd, to support our project and the people of Vila Cruzeiro.

From the 23th of September until the 31st of October 2013 we are raising the first phase of funding via Kickstarter $100.000,- and need your help!

Watch our project description on our Kickstarter page, support us and spread the word. Would be great if you'd join our journey and become part of a historical monument!

Kind regards,

Jeroen & Dre

Favela Painting project'
