  1. 1. GAMBIARRA FAVELA TECH identifying potentials | awakening possibilities
  2. 2. “Gambiologistas are waste collectors. For them, all that remains is usable: toasters, printers, iron bars, plates, ribbons and pieces of anything. They revive things, give new meaning to useless objects and invent machines randomly. Other times, they invent functional machines that are overcoming everyday adversities."
  3. 3. Immersion program 10 days | 12 young people 40 hours of programming Theoretical concepts | Practical exercises | Development of personal and collective projects | Personalized tutoring What is it?

  11. 11. For Whom? The participants The program is intended for young participants or kids from peripheries and can be adapted to different contexts. There may be a selection process carried out through open call or it can be also focused on a previous chosen public. The participants should be interested in putting their hands dirty, filled with curiosity about the universe of artistic creation and open to the use of all kinds of techniques and materials. In open call processes, the selection is based on submission of video, photo and explanation of a "homemade invention", which has already been made by the applicant. It is recommended financial scholarship for participants, so they can fully devote to the program and we can prevent evasion.
  12. 12. And who else? Communication In addition to the residency, the program intends to stimulate a network around issues such as appropriation of new technologies, new artistic languages, social changes and empowerment of young people from peripheries. Communication is a strategic axis of this project. So photos and videos will be recorded and will be available on social networks of Olabi and Observatório de Favelas. The project has also a website and a blog. Special communication actions can be performed.

Still, "artistic installations" are conceived, providing material for collective exhibitions. The pieces may present a conceptual and artistic character or they can become useful products. In addition, young people are engaged in a project network, which is based on a group on Facebook and WhatsApp, and they enter into direct dialogue with other participants. The program's goal is to promote an experimental space for creative young people from peripheries. The program results are measured from the narrative feedback from participants and the successful stories that are collected.
  14. 14. Why? This project stems from the recognition of the extraordinary creative potential of peripheries, invention are made everyday. As from the democratization of knowledge about the use of technology, Gambiarra Favela Tech intends to evoke in young people a new look at their surroundings and their own practices, empowering them as protagonists in the
