Cultural Routes, Registers and Resistance in Rio de Janeiro

This essay, by Paul Heritage, explores how a contemporary cultural organisation – Redes da Maré – that has emerged from Rio de Janeiro’s peripheral territories proposes a radical vision of art’s role in transforming the health of the city and its citizens with the same passion to reconnect the city with itself.

This is Paul Heritage’s personal account of his work in Brazil’s favelas and his encounter with Eliana Sousa Silva.
