Salvador da Bahia's Autonomous Movement
There is an ever-increasing restlessness amongst Brazil’s young actors, producers, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, dancers. Many of them have been searching for new autonomous ways of creating their work and addressing the disparities in access to cultural projects. Such is the case for many young people in Salvador da Bahia, the beating heart of culture in Brazil. From certified dance students offering free dance lessons to keep their schools open, to poets breaking the notion of exclusivity by reciting poetry in public spaces and on busses, many young people are creating new ways to keep their culture alive.
