Fundraising event 2021
Every other year, supporters of the Fundraising Event received a dinner at Casa do Povo. This year, we invite everyone to a role reversal. Learn more about this year’s edition:
The fundraising event is an opportunity to celebrate Casa do Povo and its wide performance with part of the community that makes its operation possible. Since 2016, artists, businessmen, professionals, and community and third sector leaders have attended and sponsored the event, thus providing around 20% of Casa do Povo’s annual budget.
Our commitment to this network of supporters is to offer, through an annual event, a collective and remarkable experience, in which part of our daily exercise of imagination is present and can inspire everyone.

Casa do Povo’s programming expands the notion of culture, incorporating a large array of activities beyond artistic practices – from health and caring to community issues. The code of colors, filters and tags on the website helps to navigate through this entanglement of people and initiatives. Porous, mutant and critical, the programming allows the institution to structure itself without becoming rigid, to reinvent itself without growing precarious, to internationalize without giving up its local relevance, that is, in order to experiment with other forms of existence.
Courses We strive to offer a lineup of courses that pique interest in the neighborhood and in Casa do Povo’s groups in residence, based on original and accessible practices (for those who offer, those who welcome and those who attend).
Study groups In dialogue with the institution’s axes, the study groups have various operational modes, some focused on internal processes, discussions and readings and others capable of overlapping into public events programming.
Commissioned works Casa do Povo invites artists to develop new works, adapting its physical structure and guaranteeing the full operational existence of each project held here.
Publications Each publication is understood as an extension of the projects developed and as a part of the events schedule.
Platforms Combining processes and results, discourses and actions, artistic and academic work, Casa do Povo promotes encounters based on specific themes according to the urgent issues of the day.
Groups in residence can promote public activities that become part of the events schedule. Deliberately discontinuous and fluid, these activities establish close dialogues with the institution’s work axes and help make Casa do Povo larger than it is, overflowing with community life.
Projects and proposals can be sent to email@example.com for assessment. At the same time, with the intention of encouraging this movement, an annual open call dedicated exclusively to collective practices has been launched.
Nossa Voz is a publication by Casa do Povo. Literally “Our Voice,” the newspaper existed alongside the institution from 1947 to 1964, with texts in Yiddish and Portuguese and an editorial profile aligned with left wing ideals. It was shut down by the military dictatorship, which forced editor-in-chief Hersch Schechter and other contributors into exile. Relaunched in 2014, it continues to dialogue with its historical premises while rethinking its editorial directives.
The editorial committee relies on representatives from a wide variety of areas, meeting regularly to discuss issues concerning the city, memory and artistic practices according to the current political situation.
The publication is distributed free of charge and can be obtained at Casa do Povo during hours of operation, at partner institutions and some commercial establishments in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro in São Paulo.

Publication Studio is a laboratory for publication in its fullest sense – not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through physical production, digital circulation and social gathering. Together these construct a space of conversation which beckons a public into being.
