Favela Art

Here are just some visuals to remind you how encouragement and proper communication can lead to really impressive results.

On BLDGBLOG i just came across the installation from JR as part of the 28mm/women project in Rio de Janeiro.

The installation immediately reminded me of the favelapainting project by Haas and Hahn. Favelapainting was set up in collaboration with the local community organisation Firmeza Foundation and IBISS to encourage creativity amongst the youth and provide them with tools to communicate their talent.
