Deliveries every two weeks

On Tuesdays, from noon to 7pm




Every two weeks, Casa do Povo is a pickup point of the organic boxes ensuing from family farming.

 

This proposal is an initiative led by MST (the Landless Workers’ Movement) of the São Paulo Metropolitan Area through Comunas da Terra, which are settlements in small lots oriented to the production of fruits and greeneries. The main idea is to produce poisonless and entirely agroecological food in the green belt of São Paulo, thus reclaiming the vocation of this region in supplying food for the city. Agroecology means cooperation with nature and free work, made in association. This way, the boxes sold respect the seasonality of each food for a fair price, which then returns to those who produce it.

 

How it works


- The orders must be made directly through the Cidade Agroecológica website, selecting Casa do Povo as pickup point.

- The boxes cost R$ 35,00 and are composed by 9 items (2 greens for salad, 1 or 2 greens for cooking, 2 herbs for seasoning, 2 or 3 fruits, 1 or 2 roots or vegetables)

 

- After the confirmation, the pickup must be made independently: the list with the names of who ordered that day is available in the same table as the food. You just need to check off your name and take the items you ordered.



Important notices


- Each and every purchased box must be picked up the day itself, during the hours defined to do so, from noon to 7pm.

 

- Casa do Povo does not bear responsibility for boxes that have not been picked up within this period.

 

- All remaining food of the day will be donated to the neighborhood.

 

Don’t forget to bring your bag!


 


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.

Regular activities

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.

Projects

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.

Hosted events

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 info@casadopovo.org.br 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
Nossa Voz

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.
