Sharing Peace and Love in the Favela

Paz-Santo AmaroAmor

Peace and Love are words that we are usually asked to paint on people’s walls, and once again, it was the case here in Santo Amaro, Rio de Janeiro. Universal values !


Love from the ghetto


The word “Love” was a word many people in Gagalangin wanted to share, and we painted it on the biggest wall available. We felt a lot of love during this month spent working in the slum. We did our best to make this last word look big enough and colourful enough to catch attention and to get the people’s message from the slum to the outside world.

Le mot “love” est un mot que beaucoup de gens à Gagalangin voulaient partager, et on l’a peint sur le plus gros mur du quartier. On a senti beaucoup d’amour durant le mois que nous avons passé dans le bidonville. On a fait de notre mieux pour que ce dernier mur soit suffisamment grand et coloré pour attirer l’attention et qu’il porte le message des gens du bidonville vers le monde extérieur.
