EDUCATIONAL MCB | Oficina Café e suas impressões
The Museum of Brazilian House, an institution of the State Culture Secretariat, managed by Civil Society through the House of Arts and Artifacts of Brazil, promotes, for the first time, on September 1st, Saturday, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the workshop ‘Coffee and its impressions’, which contextualizes the relation between the grain and the architecture, the house that houses the MCB and the typical Brazilian seedlings.
The activity will begin at 2:30 pm with the MCB Educational, for the production of bookmarks using coffee-based ink, specially developed for the occasion by educator Guilherme Ranieri.
At 3 pm, a chat will be held with Dr. Sérgio Parreiras Pereira, a scientific researcher at the ‘Alcides Carvalho’ Coffee Center of the Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC). The professional will give a brief account of how coffee arrived in our country in 1727, and the importance of the grain to the present day. In addition, it will explain a little about the Brazilian species, Catuí Vermelho and Mundo Novo, which will be planted in the garden of the Museum at the end of the event. Some of these seedlings will also be distributed to participants in the activity.
There will be coffee tasting for the workshop participants and visitors to the Museum, who will be able to accompany the planting of the seedlings with the producers of Café Campo Místico, in Bueno Brandão (MG), and will still receive some seeds.
To participate in the workshop, interested parties should register by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Free and limited vacancies.
About MCB Education
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.
The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the São Paulo State Department of Culture, is dedicated to the preservation and diffusion of the material culture of the Brazilian house, being the only museum in the country that specializes in architecture and design. The MCB program includes temporary and long-term exhibitions, with an agenda that also includes activities of the educational service, debates, lectures and publications contextualizing the museum’s vocation for the formation of a critical thinking in themes such as architecture, urbanism, housing, economy urban mobility and sustainability. Among its innumerable initiatives, the MCB Design Prize, the main award of the segment in the country, made since 1986; and the Casas do Brasil project, to rescue and preserve memory about the rich diversity of the country.
