A Colour Explosion in Rio

04 2010
Location: Brazil: Santa Marta, Rio De Janiero

The scale and complexity of this project was bigger than anyone expected and taught the Tudo de cor para você team a lot about the project and themselves.

This community was the first of a huge urbanisation project in Brazil that was located near the beautiful Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The Tudo de Cor Para Você project aimed to inspire people through the preservation and injection of colour that was given to the community's houses.

More than twenty of the youngsters who took part of the project were treated to a lesson in SENAI to thank them for all their hard work.

The activity of painting generates a change in people's habits and gives a feeling of proudness and ownership of the job at hand. Which the team hopes will stay with the people of Rio for many years.
