The Caravan Cultural of Light

What is it and how it works? For the citizen - for municipalities and Institutions for citizens

What is it? The Caravan of Light Cultural Collective is a tool of free distribution of knowledge. All persons involved do not spend anything and do not receive anything in terms of financial resources. We are practicing this proposal since 1990.

How many people travel?

An average of 30 to 40 people from different areas come together, voluntarily, to cross the inner cities and giving knowledge, exchange information, make some friends and to go beyond the city limits.

Happen when traveling?

The trips take place on weekends. We left Recife in a Friday evening between 18h and 21h depending of the city. We returned on Sunday after lunchtime.

Who can travel?

Anyone attuned to help, teach, share and exchange knowledge on all areas.

What is required to travel with the Caravan of Light Cultural?

Tell a proposal for a course or courses you would like to offer, indicating the minimum necessary material and a brief resume on the following model:

Name of your workshop: (one line)

What’s the propose to do your course: (max. three lines)

Your résumé, with complete home address for correspondence by ECT, telephones and e-mail.

Then the Caravan’s committee will examine your proposal for participation.
