Artist Vik Muniz and his friends are focusing their expertise on the Rio de Janeiro-based school, Spectaculu.
The Spectaculu Art and Technology School is an arts and education non-profit that gives youth in Rio de Janeiro's low-income communities the chance to enhance their artistic and cultural education and development by providing them with tangible skill sets and self-esteem.
Spectaculu is divided into two distinct schools—a Center for the Performing Arts and a Center for Visual Arts and Technology. In both schools, core reading, writing, and communication fundamentals are reinforced alongside more arts-based and visual design classes.
Herbert Marques, the participant in this video, shows us a day in the life of Spectaculu and his experiences in and out of the classroom.
