Here is collected information about A Casa Lar. I’m working to set up free/libre software infrastructure for A Casa Lar by Saturday-Sunday 29-30 June 2019, open days to which you are invited to participate.
**A Casa Lar / The Home House
is an artist space in the Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro, managed by artist and curator Carolina Cortes, with an emphasis on engaged and restorative artistic practices of community and copresence. It is a place to gather people around the fire, tell stories, feed with green food, dance in circles, sing beautiful songs and be together to thank and celebrate life. A Casa Lar hosts an art residency which receives artists to be in the jungle, a wild garden made of an Atlantic forest with native plants and animals. A quiet place for creation and to exercise living together.

I sought meaning in academic research about conflict transformation in relation to art and media history, and efforts for recovering the commons (PhD Cultural Studies with the London Consortium). I worked and taught with a number of universities, art-centers and internationally funded programs with increasing focus on free and open source technology, until a child reactivated my connection with a circle of heart-giving art educators in Brasil and helped me see what the Situationists' meant with their rejection of alienated labour. My child and I started mapping out and learning from the bravest and most meaningful art-educational initiatives around the world, and we've been focusing on holding space and community for free play, towards what Silvia Federici describes as a re-enchantment. Through my own learning path (including on-going training in Waldorf and Forest school teacher training, What Future for Education, London Institute of Education 2019; Hand in Hand Professional’s Intensive 2020) I have come to see learning as a state of being that is meaningfully embedded and present in its social setting, prioritising applied responses to local and community needs, and contributing to each other’s creative, practical, scientific, emotional and other developmental processes through a recognition of the abundant nature of the necessary resources, materials, information, peer-to-peer learning, and tools. | neeii.info
