Art changing lives: Pimp My Carroça

Wow. Mundano‘s Pimp My Carroça project is pretty fantastic. It took place earlier this year, and now there’s a video out with English subtitles to explain just what happened (well, there was already this video out, but the new video is better I think). Basically, the project uses art (among other things) to give some due respect and draw attention to the people in Brazil who make their living picking up recyclable material and taking it off the streets in man-powered carts. The video is a bit long, but I hope you’ll watch the whole thing.
