GAMBIARRA LAB 2.0 - Coming Spring 2017

The first edition of Gambiarra Lab was produced in Rio de Janeiro as part of CreativeLab: Social Change through Creativity and Culture and involved 13 Brazillian artists from the city.

Using nothing more than found objects and recycled tech, the artists developed their ideas and honed their skills through a series of workshops at Redes da Maré in Rio, between April and May 2016. Gambiarra Lab 1.0 culminated in a creative summit and immersive multimedia experience at venues in Maré and at Oi Futuro Flamengo cultural centres as part of the CreativeLab/Multiplicidade Festival.

The residency allows artists to bring unheard stories and experiences to public attention, using the potential of Gambiarra culture in the context of the creative industries, and its impact on economic and social values.
