Our Expert Guide will take you on an eye-opening excursion to Saramandaia Favela, one of the biggest favelas in Salvador. Here, you'll have the unique opportunity to visit a local community, learn about life inside a favela, and help out with local art projects.
Living in a multicultural city which has historically been marked by sharp socio-economic inequalities, leads to the development of strategies to combat social stratification and exclusion. Saramandaia, like many other similar communities, is characterized by abject poverty and insufficient governmental assistance, consequently resulting in high rates of violence. Despite facing multiple barriers, residents have elaborated strategies that seek to reclaim the historical identity of the favela's inhabitants. In 2003, a conscious art project was founded, which has gradually been changing the community's reality by providing assistance to young men and women, aiming to transform their unfavorable conditions and socio-economic exclusion.
During this tour, we will delve further into this important social project that seeks to change lives through organized arts and sports courses, utilizing graffiti, capoeira, boxing, percussion, and acrobatic workshops. This tour promotes interaction and participation between our clients, the students, and community members so that we can experience the transformative power of these initiatives.
Join us and gain a deeper understanding of life in Saramandaia Favela, and help to continue the growth of these important social projects.
