Love between community and school

Paluí esteve no Paluí was at Imaginarius Festival in a small structure that was also a place to show several illustrations and projects developed by children and a room to share imaginaries and thoughts with the audience.

It took place in May 2015. And for us, tons of written texts, draws and more draws of Teresa, of ‘coisa preta’ (‘black thing’), of white or blue day, of owl or crow, of ‘serolho’, of ‘menino com bicho’ (‘kid with bug’), of crying and laughs…

Here lived, side by side with a maze of projected images of all work, the planet Paluí under construction, a ‘Somalandra’ and the conclusion of the process that children had started in school.
