Ongoing programs


The capoeira program runs for one hour per week and is subdivided into two programs:

  • Criança de Ouro provides capoeira classes for children aged 4 to 12 years old
  • Mamacitas de Ouro provides capoeira and self-defense elements to vulnerable women in violence-prone communities


Children are introduced to music through different rhythmical art form as part of their capoeira training. These include the maculelê dance, percussions and songs.


Mundo Art features Samba Axe: a dance rooted in African rhythms that infuses the soul with positive energy. Open to children and adults of all ages.

Coming soon


The photography and film program aims to teach children to document their daily lives and Mundo Art activities, creating environments of candid images. The photography program will run weekly for one hour per week.

Mundo Art will host monthly projections and exhibitions of the photography and art produced by the students of the program. Mundo Art will also publish the works on the web, to give international exposure to the creations of its children. A yearly photography book will also be produced, featuring original texts by the community children.


The painting program aims to incorporate recycling of existing material, restoration and embellishment of damaged objects and advanced drawing and painting techniques.
