ROLES: executive producer (2018/2019) and photographer for 2018 edition of the project.
The project #salvemnossosfigos (#saveourfigs) is an art intervention that aims to draw attention to the need to preserve the culture of Valinhos, once it is the main producer of fig in Brazil. It also intended to bring more art to people's daily lives.
In September 2018, 40 ceramic figs were scattered around the streets of Valinhos, all painted by artists from the city, waiting for someone to save them and take them home. That's right, the person who found the fig could take it home for free. In 2019, the project got to its second edition with more 30 pieces scattered around the streets of Valinhos.
They were successful, became famous and came back sold on Ocupe.Arte plataform. These are exclusive drawings made by artists from Valinhos, to symbolise the culture of our city. By acquiring the figs, people strengthened Ocupe.Arte and, at the same time, generated income for the artists and artisans who created the works. Besides, of course, they now have a beautiful fig painted by an amazing artist!
