Lead for Indigenous Exchange & Climate Action


Thiago Jesus is a creative producer and researcher passionate about arts and transformation. For over ten years, he has managed wide-ranging international creative projects and interdisciplinary research at PPP in collaboration with artists, academics, activists, and local communities in various countries. Since 2014, as the head of PPP’s Indigenous Exchange and Climate Action projects, Thiago has been working closely with Indigenous peoples from the Xingu Territory—in the Brazilian Amazon’s ‘arc of deforestation’—leading an exchange programme for the preservation of indigenous cultural practices as a key factor in safeguarding these communities from the climate crisis.

Thiago is also working on Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative and Climate Leadership programme, and is doing doctoral research at Queen Mary University of London, funded by the AHRC (LAHP Collaborative Doctoral Awards). The study, ‘The Art of Creating Climates’, investigates how third-sector organisations with arts and environment at the heart of their programmes approach climate change and respond to environmental issues in distinct North and South contexts, in partnership with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Thiago holds a MA in Visual Culture (University of Westminster) and a BA in Media and Communications (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
