A couple traveling around the world : many classroom stories along the way.
Who are we?
We're travelers. Two people that, even before leaving Brazil, were already dreaming of a new education that is able to bring humanity into the educational process. Our goal is to travel around the world seeking the change that we all know is urgent and necessary. In our mission, we choose special helpers: who better than teachers to tell us about what is education? Teachers have been taken away from discussions and decisions regarding the educational process. They are voices that have been silenced over the years by numerous other voices. From our desire to change came the need to bring teachers to the center of the circle, to dance with them the music that led them to the place where they are. What made them come here? What makes them stay? What dreams they dream? What future they plan?
Teachers have a lot to say, and we decided to listen.
With a Masters degree in School Psychology and Human Development from Universidade Estadual de São Paulo, Juliana conducts researches in early childhood education, teacher/student relations, the image of teachers in the media, children’s culture, public education and alternative schools. From her experience in and around schools, she decided to seek a way to tell these stories, turning teachers into the real protagonists of their practices.
With a Graphic Design degree from Universidade Estadual Paulista, illustrator by profession, carpenter by choice and graffiti artist by passion, Vinicius is trying to expand the role of social transformations of both public and private spaces. He dedicates his studies to educational furniture and to the role of art and culture in the lives and education of children and adults.
