Since May 2016, the Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the State Secretariat of Culture of the State of São Paulo, offers free passers-by from Faria Lima Av that raise questions from their own memories and experiences, relating their lives to the main theme of the museum: the Brazilian house and in 2018 would not be different.

Know below the calendar of the workshops on the sidewalk that will be held in January:

Design your home
January 10th and 24th, Wednesdays, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Marcos Gorgatti, an MCB educator, draws a drawing of the participant’s house from an affective description or photograph. The drawn image can be taken home as a souvenir

Embroidered House
January 11th, Thursday, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
From images of pieces from the MCB collection, and from memories of household objects of daily use, the educating artist Beth Ziani will offer to the public passing knowledge of embroidery and application in fabric. The participant can contribute to the creation of a large collective embroidery or to start an individual work.

Words and Houses

About MCB
MCB Education proposes practices that articulate the look, the doing and the thinking so that the visitors take on the role of researchers, researching the contents that the museum offers in a contemporary perspective. The idea is to create challenges for participants in educational activities to raise questions from their own experiences and discover new meanings in relating the visit to MCB with their lives. Visits in groups – In general, educational and social institutions can be scheduled in advance. The duration is approximately one and a half hours. Groups with more than 25 people are divided into two groups. Spontaneous visits can be done individually or in groups.
