11. FestFoto - International Festival of Photography of Porto Alegre

8 to 12 of May 2018


The Educational Action of FestFoto worked in all editions using the proposed themes, creating content to contribute to a visual education as a basis for a possible understanding of contemporary social and cultural issues. Going in the outskirts of Porto Alegre or bringing these to the downtown where the festival takes place, the workshops, experiences and guided visits to the FestFoto, seek to empower ordinary people to understand the questions that contemporary art does and the contribution of photography on this debate. Important partnerships with cultural centers of the city of Porto Alegre and the state and municipal schools enabled expand the scope of educational action and become even part of actions in classrooms. One of the highlights of FestFoto of Educational Action took place in 2014 and when the guided tours offered during the exhibition of Genesis, of Sebastião Salgado, at Usina do Gasômetro Cultural Center served more than three thousand students from local schools. Also, schools from the interior of the state chartered buses to come to the capital and visit the exhibition.
