Summary

In underserved communities, adolescents and young people do not have qualified opportunities for work and income. The result is that many of them end up continuing their parents' cycle of poverty. This one-year project will benefit 110 adolescents from Santa Luzia do Itanhy. It will provide an art & design residence with Ronaldo Fraga (well-known Brazilian stylist) and Miro Dantas (Brazilian artist) to introduce new illustration techniques using digital technologies.

Challenge

In underserved regions like Santa Luzia do Itanhy, adolescents, and young people do not have qualified work and reasonable income opportunities. The result is that many of them end up continuing their parents' cycle of poverty. In these regions, the challenge is to offer professional qualifications and opportunities for talented young people to undertake and create local businesses, thus contributing to breaking the model of the perpetuation of poverty.

Solution

This project will provide an art & design residence with Ronaldo Fraga (stylist) and Miro Dantas (artist) for ten adolescents. Each of them will pass along the learned techniques to another ten adolescents from their respective communities. So, in total, we will benefit 110 adolescents. They will be introduced to new illustration techniques using digital technologies and trained in new ways of perceiving the mangrove and local cultural elements. This residence will generate a fashion collection.

Long-Term Impact

The Arte Naturalista project trains teenagers in illustration techniques and supports entrepreneurial initiatives in visual arts, design, and fashion since 2012. Each trained teenager becomes a multiplier. The adolescents' training in new languages in the visual arts will make it possible to expand the possibilities of generating work and income, especially in digital technologies that, due to the pandemic, have gained even greater dimensions of remote business opportunities.
