The Brazilian Arts and Cultural Engagement (B.R.A.C.E.)

Minority Help’s Brazilian Arts and Cultural Engagement (The B.R.A.C.E.) Project has been designed to promote the Brazilian heritage while increasing cultural awareness and diversity.

The B.R.A.C.E. sponsors year-round arts-based programs and culturally unique activities to empower the Brazilian cultural vitality locally. The project promotes language and cultural workshops, weekly cultural heritage expositions of drama, poetry, storytelling, joke-telling, popular music concerts, arts and craft labs, snapshots of community life, art demonstrations, typical food contest, parades, folk festivals, competitions, public interviews, typical dance performances, theatrical exhibitions, artistic performances, and other cultural activities and celebrations.

In 2018, Minority Help and the City of Pompano Beach will be sponsoring the Brazilian Folks, a major annual community folk festival, in collaboration with local businesses and partners, community organizations, volunteers, and the Brazilian media. The Brazilian Folks, a 2-day arts-based community event, is a culturally unique exhibition of the Brazilian arts and culture. The festival will have music and dance performances, hands-on workshops, typical food contest, samba parade, local business exposition, and celebration of the Brazilian arts and cultural heritage. Join us and learn about the exciting Brazilian heritage! The Brazilian Folks will be held on June 23 and 24, 2018 at the Pompano Community Park, in Pompano Beach/FL.
