‘AfroMundi’ children’s dance company presents Afro-Roots in the little square of Cabelo Seco, between poems and songs by the writers of AESSPA, watched by the writers of the future in the community library ‘Leaves of Life’.

Our eco-cultural and socio-environmental project, Rivers of Meeting, rooted in the Afro-Indigenous community of Cabelo Seco, carried out two news collaborations this past week, with 16 indigenous youth from Thydewas Hub of Culture in Bahia, and writers from the Association of Writers from the South and Southeast of Pará, in the 42nd Fest of the Full Moon. These are the first steps of two recent national awards, Rivers of Creativity (Ministry of Education), and Networks of Creativity (Ministry of Culture), and anticipate our first international Festival of Pan-Amazonian Beauty, planned for November 2016, to value and preserve the Boulders of Lourenção, to be exploded to deepen the Rio Tocantins and turn it into an industrial highway.
