Brazilian “literatura de cordel” is a folk poetry form, created by and for the people as a means to teach morals, provide entertainment, and share stories.

Funded through a U.S. Department of State Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund grant, Brazilian arts and culture producer Prussiana Fernandes will be in Indianapolis on Thursday, Jan. 16th to teach a workshop on cordel: where it came from, why it’s still important today, and how to create it.

Prussiana Araújo Fernandes Cunha is a cultural education professional and publisher from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in cultural communication at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. Her published research, “As narrativas urbanas dos ambulantes de Belo Horizonte”, focuses on urban narratives from marginalized voices. She is both the co-founder and creative director of Editora Calamares, an independent publishing house that focuses on publishing local writers and works in translation.

This event is appropriate for anyone interested in poetry, storytelling, zines, the role of art in creating community, Brazil, and/or Latin America.
