Azulejaria is a workshop and art collective made of craftspeople and artists who combine art and education with social and cultural activism.
Founded in 2003 by the architect Laura Taves in Rio de Janeiro, the Azulejaria works on private and public projects with an educational focus. Develops workshops with children and youngsters building up permanent murals as a result of a learning process and a collective production in an effort to combine art, education and the urban landscape. Also it aims at giving people who might not be able to afford an education, the ability to become professional craftspeople who are then able to earn a living while expressing themselves artistically.
