With pictures, drawings, videos, sounds, films, debates and also an expedition with 4 artists to the Amazonia, this project used cultural content to address the main social, ecological and state model issues that are in conflict now in the core of the Amazonia watershed within the construction of Belo Monte the biggest dam system ever built in a rain forest.

The multimedia artistic content was curated in a way so the audience would be able to understand the contrasts and nuances of what is happening in deep Brasil under the silence of international media. A multibillionaire investment aiming a future that in essence refutes to deal with the ecosystem, and with the indigenous rights issues with clarity, susceptibly without measuring the consequences in a proper way.

Ngô Meitiré (“Water, Valuable Water” translated form Tupi-Guarani, a typical indian language from Amazonia) is a project that happen in partnership with Redesearte Paz (ibero american cultural agents network) in 2012, and is part of a joint project among other 5 countries that look to the collaborative and social development through cultural processes.
