Spreading culture throughout Brazil

09.03.2020 | Culture and Sports

Bring culture, joy, information and provide moments of integration to communities in the regions where Grupo CCR operates. This is the objective of travelling projects supported by the CCR Institute. This year, the initiatives are expected to reach over 150 cities, benefiting thousands of people. Learn more about the BuZum, Cine em Cena [movie theater], PhotoTruck and Teatro a Bordo [mobile theater] projects!

BuZum: puppet theater adapted on a bus that takes children and youth shows to different cities. In partnership with CCR, the initiative has covered more than 250 thousand kilometers, holding approximately 9,500 sessions for approximately half a million people. The shows are aimed at elementary school students (children aged 3 to 11 years) or high school (adolescents aged 12 to 17 years). The presentations planned for 2020 are “Caipira”, recovering stories of folk figures, “Curumim”, a tribute to indigenous culture, and “O Grande Perigo”, which tells the story of Tata, a small turtle that, after being born, returns to the sea in search of his mother.

Cine em Cine [movie theater]: a traveling cinema with 225 seats that takes the seventh art to cities without commercial theaters. The project also relies on facilities in culturally and economically disadvantaged regions, thus providing the needy community with access to Brazilian cultural goods and 3D technology. In Brazil, only 10% of the municipalities have cinemas. For this reason, the project is the first opportunity for many to see a film in a unique environment.

PhotoTruck: the project brings schools and public institutions a new vision of photography and transforms this look into a beautiful exhibition. The initiative plans to carry out a photography circuit, with educational workshops in several municipalities. Through PhotoTruck, it is possible to promote photographic artistic interventions and enable group work and socialization, in addition to encouraging youth to be communicative and participative, generating a reflection on the environment in which they live.

Teatro a Bordo [mobile theater]: the first solar mobile theater in Brazil, with free presentations, educational workshops, parades and artistic interventions in its container-stage that travels throughout the country. The presentations are held in squares and public spaces, with free and unrestricted access to the population, opening their curtains also to the artists of the city and providing cultural exchange and appreciation of local culture.
