Atelier Favela is a foundation that helps the youth in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. They offer them classes in drawing, painting, product design with vintage materials, crafts, music, stage play, and turning so that they can develop in multiple ways. Through this the kids can get out of the social isolation of the favelas and find their place in society.
During Skatejam 2009 in Delft the Dutch graffiti- collective Lastplak cooperated with Tweedehands Lundia.nl (secondhand Lundia) for Ateliers Favela. Micklarock joined them at the spot. Two Lundia cabinets were painted. The cabinets will be exposed on tour at company offices, schools and organisation offices to attract attention to the work Atelier Favela does. Finally the artwork will be sold through Atelier Favela's website. The money will be put into educating materials in Atelier favela's studio in Rio.
If you're interested in exhibiting the cabinets at your office or school, or if you'd like to purchase the art, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
