‘What is your home pharmacy?’ is a virtual workshop offered by the educational team of the Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the Government of the State of São Paulo, managed by Fundação Padre Anchieta. The activity takes place on Saturday, March 26, from 10 am to 12 pm, via the Zoom platform. Interested parties can apply through the website: mcb.org.br.
The workshop, which takes place within the scope of the exhibition ‘Design and Industry – The history of the traditional pharmacy Granado, is interested in mapping, exchanging and hearing about medicinal care practices from the domestic environment. In a period before ours and, even today, in the midst of many communities in this country, medicine and pharmacy were not restricted to the commercial/mercantile scope shaped by large distribution networks of an allopathic medicine, they were rather part of a local economy, based on in solidarity, in the transmission of knowledge and in the limit, a construction of a science based on the investigation of nature, woods and forests.
The advances that modern medicine and pharmacology have provided in the sense of dealing with and even eradicating a series of diseases long considered insoluble problems are undoubtedly reasons for celebration, however, the same framework of development caused the erasure of important medicinal technologies discovered and developed within the context of native, African and even European cultures.
There is no age restriction to participate in the workshop, but children must be accompanied by an adult capable of mediating the contents raised at the meeting.
