4 August - 4 August
Second Home has joined forces with community-generated radio station dublab Brazil to host a special evening of art, music and discussion dedicated to the indigenous resistance of Brazil.
First, immerse yourself in the story of the Amazon Rainforest and the plight of its peoples in the words of local tribal leader Watatakalu Yawalapiti in a powerful audio-visual installation BLOOD-SAP: A Manifesto of Love and Fight from Amazon Communities created by artists Maihara Marjorie and Thiago Duar.
Then learn about why we must indigenise the dirty and complicated politics that govern Amazônia as we pay tribute to the vital work of the late activists Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereria, with a special talk by Brazil Foreign Correspondent Andrew Downie and Survival International Indigenous tribes activist Sarah Shenker.
And finally dance to the sounds of Brazil at Carnival do Brasil at with DJ sets from dublab Brazil, Worm Soundsystem and a special live performance from Afon Sistema.
All ticket proceeds go to charity, but Whitechapel Gallery guests can use code FIRSTTHURSDAYS for free tickets.
