LABVERDE: Art Immersion Program in the Amazon

LABVERDE: Art Immersion Program in the Amazon was created to strengthen the limits of art through a broad array of experiences, knowledge sets and cultural perspectives involving art, science and nature. The program’s main goal is to promote artistic creation through a constructive debate about environmental issues generated by both theory and life experiences in the Amazon rainforest. The program was developed in association with Manifesta Art and Culture and The National Institute for Amazonian Research. Designed by a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified specialists in art, philosophy, biology, ecology and natural science, LABVERDE aims to allow a deep understanding of the Amazon region.
