About

Braziliarty is a social enterprise (CIC) committed to promote Brazilian arts and culture.

Between 2008 and 2016, Braziliarty produced over 57 events in Europe, providing a platform for almost 250 artists. In 2016, Braziliarty launched a new service, offering bespoke arts and cultural trips for those who are willing to experience it in Brazil.

Braziliarty will keep offering its consultancy services and producing events in Europe and beyond on top of its cultural tourism activities.

History

Braziliarty CIC was created after the award-winning project Braziliality, a platform for the promotion of Brazilian arts and culture abroad with a portfolio of over 50 independent events produced since 2008. Braziliarty follows the ethic of Braziliality to work on collaborations and partnerships to develop projects.

Braziliality began as an independent art project in July 2008 in London and, in 2012, became a social enterprise (Community Interest Company). To date, it has showcased the work of over 242 artists from 23 countries at 50 events; including visual exhibitions, film screenings, festivals, talks & debates. Working in partnership with different venues, Braziliality has exhibited  in Soho, Camden, Hackney and Shoreditch. Braziliality carried the philosophy to join forces to carry out the projects, adding value through social and cultural partnerships and counted with the great work of the talented Art Director and Designer Bianca Turner and the occasional advice from Art Consultant Pier Tosta.

We collaborated with partners such as Amnesty International, ABC Trust, Festinho Festival, Science Museum, V&A Museum, Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery, Art at Lloyds Club, Festival Visual Brasil in Barcelona, Inffinito Brazilian Film Festival, Monorex, Brasil Observer, Magazine Jungle Drums and Leros, Brazilian News, Canal Londres, Latin America Bureau, Displacement Project in Berlin Fourth Plinth Project in Trafalgar Square Pedal Power, PLANarama, Cachaça Abelha, 16mm, Made in Brazil, Favela Chic and Floripa.

Braziliarty was awarded the best cultural event in the UK by the Brazilian International Press Award in 2012, it was nominated for the Creative Enterprise Awards 2011 by SEE at University of the Arts London and Runner -Up for the best exhibition in 2014 with Conscientia at Lloyds Club at the LUKAS Awards in 2015. We are working on a major venture as well as research and projects, exchanging and promoting Brazilian culture in Europe contributing to the diversity of the Creative Industries.

We are constantly looking for artists, organisations and brands to work together. Braziliarty is founded by Alicia Bastos. If you are interested to be part of Braziliarty contact us on all@braziliarty.org. To see the latest and largest projects visit the Portfolio page.
