Realization: Days 19/11, 26/11, 03/12, 17/12, 14/01.
Objectives: The Maria and João Aleixo Institute, in partnership with the Moreira Salles Institute, proposed a project for networking and training in the field of art and culture, consisting of workshops on the themes of artistic curation - in visual arts, literature, cinema and music - and "art as work", with interviews with invited teachers and students, and a mapping of peripheral artistic scenes. The training had as protagonists, young residents of favelas and peripheries, preferably black.
The training took place in five days, one day for each theme. Each day had two mentors who had 4 hours each to mentor the participants. The objective was that the first mentoring was a theoretical explanation about the challenges of curatorship in their respective artistic expressions, since the demands for more racial, gender and peripheral representation are necessary. The second mentoring of the day aimed at a theoretical explanation of the mentor’s curatorial process, or the various other curatorial methodologies in their areas. In the mentorships of "Art as Work" the themes Project Development, Fundraising and Social Media, were made on the same day and had respectively 2 hours each to be developed. The goal was for the mentors to make an explanation about the main points about the themes and the possibilities of optimizing them.

It tends to classify schools and students, in addition to blaming education professionals for the "low" rates obtained in the national tests.

The MIDEQ - Center for Migration, Inequality and South-South Development of the UKRI GCR
Research on the complex and multidimensional relations between migration and inequality in the context of the Global South. It aims to transform the understanding of the relationship between migration and inequality, decentralizing the production of knowledge about migration and its consequences from the Global North to the countries where most migrations occur.

Our ultimate goal is to translate this knowledge into public policies and concrete practices that improve the lives of migrants, their families and the communities in which they live.
The Maria and João Aleixo Institute researches, in Brazil, the Haiti-Brazil migration flow.

Pesquisadores da educação básica em periferias: uma proposta de formação a partir do trabalho remoto.
In 2018 and 2019, anti-racist research and actions were carried out in schools in several Brazilian states, through Uniperiferias public notices in partnership with the Unibanco Institute. In 2020, Uniperiferias proposed to return, remotely, to the schools where the actions were carried out in the previous two years to collect information that would help to understand how such actions carried out in schools were related to specific aspects of students, teachers and managers, with regard to racial and gender relations. The research investigates whether the anti-racist and antisexual practices performed could operate in different ways in aspects such as students' self-esteem, expectations and actions of teachers and teacher training, effectively contributing to the appreciation of ethnic-racial minorities (especially black people) in schools through an anti-racist perspective.
The research was guided and revolved around the following questions:
What are the relations of anti-racist practices with the trajectories, life projects, expectations and self-esteem of Brazilian public school students? How do students perceive these relationships?
What are the relations of anti-racist practices with teaching and management practices about racial and gender relations in Brazilian public schools? How do teachers and managers perceive these relationships?
