Almost 10 years ago, at the very top of Brazil’s first favela, Morro da Providência, was founded Casa Amarela. Since then, it has turned into a cultural center, which aims to make art and culture as reachable as possible to its inhabitants.
Everyday, Casa Amarela opens its doors to children, teenagers and adults, offering a wide range of activities, such as, arts, theatre, dancing, music, alphabetization, French, English and sports such as boxe and capoeira.
With time, many partnerships have been built with local activists, artists and teachers but also other cultural centers that now allow for this very diverse program held at Casa Amarela. Some would say it is a sanctuary for those who come to participate, others would call it a peaceful place where the main pillars are: the arts, culture and education.
At Casa Amarela, you can even dream of reaching the moon, especially since there is one at the top of the house, that welcomes artists from all over Brazil and the world for artistic residencies, during which the artists come to discover life at Providência, and share their passion and art with the youth of the community.
