Ciranda de Filmes

Ciranda was born in 2014, as the first film festival focused on education and childhood in Brazil. Co-produced by Instituto Alana, Circuito Cinearte and Aiuê Produtora de Conteúdo, and sponsored by Instituto Alana and Intituto Península, the first edition of the event lasted for more than three days in São Paulo, and included film exhibitions as wells as discussion circles divided into three topics: birth and childhood, learning spaces, and transformative movements.

Espaço Alana

Espaço Alana is where Alana’s work began 20 years ago. Created in a vulnerable community in São Paulo’s eastern outskirts – Jardim Pantanal – Espaço Alana’s mission today is to encourage local development through social, educational, and community organizing actions with the following leisure, culture and community building activities:

ba-circulo Banda Alana: Provides children and youngsters with access to culture, education and strengthening of a sense of citizenship through music – a tool for social transformation;

Espaço Alana Library: Conducts activities, through mediation and dialogue, to provide access to culture, books and reading;

Toy Library: Encourages play through playful and free activities in its space and in the shared communal area;

Community articulation: Encourages volunteering and special events for community building, fostering discussions on topics of interest to the community.

Everyone can make use of the large communal sharing space – designed by the architect Rodrigo Ohtake – located on Rua Erva do Sereno, 642, Jardim Pantanal.
