Having worked for the Brazilian Arts Foundation for over 5 years has allowed me to see how much progress it has made over time to improve every program offered as well as the facility, and the expertise of its leaders.
It is a place that believes in providing education in a rich and diverse environment that welcomes everyone and where people with all sorts of backgrounds, cultures and limitations come together not only to learn but to become a supportive community and valuable friendships that feel like family for many of the members.
