Support the indigenous resistance of Brazil with an evening of art, music, dancing, drinks and discussion.
The devastation of the Amazon Rainforest is happening in front of our eyes. The depletion of the forests, the contamination of the rivers, the loss of biodiversity and the erasure of indigenous communities.
Second Home has joined forces with community-generated radio station dublab to host a special party highlighting the art, music and discussion dedicated to the indigenous resistance of Brazil. We will be honoring and celebrating the stunning culture of Brazil – all are welcome…bring friends and contribute to the cause!
Blood Sap: A Manifesto of Love and Fight by Amazon Communities (7-11pm)
Immerse yourself in the beauty of the forest and plight of its people in this powerful audio-visual artwork created by Brazilian artists Maihara Marjorie, Thiago Duar and Watatakalu Yawalapiti.
Their work will be on display and playing throughout the evening for your viewing.
Indigenize the Politics: A Discussion in Tribute for Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira
This program is inspired by, and dedicated to, the work of Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira. These activists were murdered in the Amazon for investigating the undeclared war on indigenous communities.
Join us in conversation with Vincent Bevins and Julia Jaye Posin to discuss why, in their honor, we must indigenize the politics that govern Amazônia. Preventing the world’s most important ecosystem from being ransacked is important now more than ever.
Vincent Bevins is an award-winning journalist, former Brazil correspondent for the Los Angeles Times (2011-2016), and author of The Jakarta Method. He moved to São Paulo in 2010 and immediately became friends with Dom Phillips, who ended up writing frequently for the English-language project at Folha de S.Paulo – “From Brazil” – that Vincent began editing in 2012.
Like Dom Phillips, Vincent frequently traveled to the Amazon during his time as a journalist in Brazil, reporting on the environmental destruction, violence, and power struggles that tragically plague the region.
Brazilian Dance Celebration
Celebrate the exhilarating musical culture of Brazil and join us for a dance party in our garden. Tunes will be provided by DJ wyldeflower and there will be a special performance from Grammy nominated artist and Brazilian cultural legend, Thalma de Freitas, thanks to our amazing partner dublab! Special Caipirinha cocktails will be available as well!
Tickets are donation based and all money raised will be donated to Acampamento Terra Livre – the largest mobilization of Indigenous Peoples in Brazil fighting for the land, for life, for natural resources and for the sovereignty of the Brazilian people!
