This exhibition has been cancelled in light of measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Favela residents are defined by violence because that is how the media represents them. The artists in this exhibition introduced children to the power of photography so it can be used as a tool to change these stereotypes. The exhibition Unity shows the student’s perspective of their home. Favelas are tight-knit, positive communities and this event engrosses the viewer in their positive energy.
