Casa do Povo

Casa do Povo

Casa do Povo is an art centre founded and historically run by the left-oriented Jewish community in São Paulo, Brazil. Opened in 1953, it was established as a living monument to the memory of the millions murdered during the Second World War. Casa do Povo’s neighbourhood,  Bom Retiro has historically received different waves of immigrant groups, including Greeks, Koreans and Bolivians, among others – and they are all active and welcome participants in the house’s activities. In Casa do Povo, memory serves as a basis for the imagination and construction of a better future based on tolerance, diversity, human rights, and redistribution.
