Slums become art in Rio de Janeiro

IT’S not often that art is shown making a huge difference in peoples lives, but every now and then, it really does.

And nothing makes me happier than to see creativity being used to help better one’s own community.

Especially when the end result is as cheerful as project Tudo de Cor para Santa Marta.

The community of Santa Marta, in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, teamed up with artists Haas and Han to turn some 7,000 square meters of hillside slum and convert it into a new monument for the community.
