Potência Ativa
together, 2020, by Traplev + Cafeteria <> Cafeteria, available through Active Power

If the Christmas spirit symbolizes love, unity and generosity, a Christmas with art would be no different! Contrary to the values of art fairs and galleries, Potência Ativa, Birico, JAMAC and Milhas Pela Vida das Mulheres are projects that, among other things, sell works of art for prices well below the market. They are works by young and renowned artists, created with great affection and care, whose sales are aimed at building a fairer world with more culture.

Is your dream to have a work by Adriana Varejão? Miles for the Life of Women is selling, until the end of the year, a woodcut of the artist for R$250! And when you buy the job, you help women secure access to safe, legal abortions. There are 49 female artists helping other women, all with works for sale for the same price.

But if you would like to help children who are in a situation of extreme social vulnerability, Potência Ativa is raising funds to buy a community house for single mothers and children who live in occupations and attend Lanchonete <> Lanchonete, in Rio de Janeiro. By purchasing a painting by artist Rafael Alonso for R$1,500, you are helping to make this dream come true. The project also features other works for sale at lower prices.

We also have fine art prints of Birico, on sale for R$97.00 with unlimited edition or for R$227.00 with limited edition. With works by 40 artists, including Aline Motta, Mônica Ventura, Raphael Escobar, Renata Felinto, Priscila Barbosa, CL Salvaro and Mundano, the funds raised by Birico are divided equally between two funds; one to support emergency actions in Cracolândia and another to be shared equally among the participating artists.

In addition, every week JAMAC produces a new series of dishtowels with stencils from its collection. The dishcloths are made in workshops with young people from the outskirts of São Paulo at the JAMAC workshop and sold in sets of three cloths for R$50. It's worth remembering that JAMAC also sells beautiful t-shirts and bags with their prints!

Great opportunity for those who want to buy works of art for more than special values and, at the same time, collaborate with serious projects committed to social causes!
