Instituto Brincante

Instituto Brincante

The Brincante Institute is a space for learning, assimilating and recreating the country’s countless artistic traditions, with a focus on studying and restoring Brazilian culture. Alana has believed in and supported this project since 2008 – with a greater emphasis starting in 2014, when Brincante discovered they had to leave the building they had been in for 22 years in the Vila Madalena neighborhood, and had to reinvent themselves to keep going. Alana was actively engaged in the #FicaBrincante (#StayBrincante) movement, which culminated in a crowdfunding campaign to raise resources for a new building, currently under construction.
