I’m Katharina, originally from Germany, living in Paraty since 2013. I work in the field of development cooperation with social and artistic projects and in the organization of cultural events. I studied “International Development” at the university in Vienna, Austria. I already travelled a lot in Brazil and Latin America realizing field works.
My partner is Luciano, born in Recife. He is musician, artist, composer, writer and promoter of cultural events. In the last years he organized important events in Brazil and Europe, like the Festival of Brazilian Music in Vienna, Austria. Also he published two poetry books “O qué que tu tem Zé?” and “Cafés”. In 2015 he recorded his CD “Mar” and in 2018 his CD “Mandinga di Caboclo”.

Our main motive is to build bridges between people, countries, nature and arts.
