The Arts House
The ProBrasil Arts House is a space to develop the potential of the members of the projects that live in a situation of social vulnerability, contributing to their employability, autonomy and income generation, aiming to stimulate social transformation through professional training courses and workshops for income generation.
The space promotes courses in the area of arts and crafts. At the moment our focus is the training in cut sewing, patchwork and handicrafts.
The courses have been specially targeted to women from the district of Parelheiros and surrounding region, with the aim of empowering and qualifying them for the clothing market and for the autonomous production of fashion, arts and crafts.
We currently have a cutting and sewing course in partnership with the German company Knorr Bremsen, where 60 seamstresses aged between 16 and 70 are being trained. We also have a training course in Patchwork where 25 students are trained each semester for the production of utilities.
