Rio de Janeiro, Brazil · Visual Arts
Artistic Director of the Art Residency Program MAM | Capacete and professor at Parque Lage Visual Art School, Camilla Rocha Campos has been involved in national and international initiatives that reconnect localities to bodies, especially from the perspective of the diaspora and its values, energies.
As part of her work, she wishes to re-open the doors of Centro Cultural Pequena Africa, an NGO created with the aim of keeping alive the cultural memory of a landslide territory in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Known as the Little Africa region, this area is a victim of the process of gentrification and real estate speculation, distancing itself from its ancestral spirituality and territorial value, especially for the black diaspora community.
