Since 2008 Ticún Brasil/תיקון ברזיל creates mutual inspirations for Brazilian and international art communities via innovative cultural exchange programs. Our projects promote lesser known sides of Brazilian art, provide volunteering opportunities for travelers to Brazil and connect artists worldwide.

Ticún Brasil activities range from teaching photography and English in slums (favelas) to art residencies, improvisational music cinematic concerts, shadows puppet theater, Jewish and Afro-Brazilian studies and poetry presentations in Rio de Janeiro and New York.

The project’s name comes from “Tikun Olam”(תיקון עולם‎), a Hebrew phrase that means “repairing the world.”
