Young Biodiversity Artists
“Young Artists Biodiversity in Tropical Forest of Brazil’’ is a course that allows youth from our local community in Iporanga to transform knowledge into art. With the Atlantic Forest as their classroom, students embark on a 3-week course on biodiversity, history, culture and use this knowledge to transform it into digital art, through photography and editing. They produce images, mini-documentaries and applied art that remind us of the significance of our natural, historical and cultural richness. Their work is then presented to our local community and made available online via social media in order to sensitize everyone to the importance of preserving the Atlantic Forest. This project will be replicated every year so that generations of talented young people from Iporanga get their opportunity to develop their skills and interests.
Want to support young biodiversity artists?
In 2016, through various donations, we were able to hire professors and defray the expenses of the course.
The most important thing is that we were able to buy the necessary permanent equipment, such as a camera, a machine for printing T-shirts, making the financial resources necessary to maintain this project in the coming years very viable. Donate today to support young Biodiversity Artists – Class of 2017!
The class of 2016 were exceptional students and the course ended with a closing ceremony at the local school which was a spectacular success! We produced a documentary which covers the entire course as well as includes footage of the closing ceremony so you can see the project to its completion. Please watch this video as the faces of the participating children says far more than any words can.
