Eureka … Associação Espaço Cultural Lanchonete is registered!
As mentioned in a previous post, over the past months we've been working with, Barbosa e Spalding Advogados, a group of kick-ass lawyers in São Paulo to register the Associação Espaço Cultural Lanchonete. We just learned that our registration was successful ... we're legal!!! While the association will be open for a general membership soon, the founding president and counselors are artists and cultural producers in São Paulo (and one in Belo Horizonte). They are Joel Borges (Director of Cultural Projects @Casa das Caldeiras Art Space), Angela Destro (Producer @ Teatro Oficina), Francisca Caporali (Founder of Ja.Ca Residency), and Leandro Viana (Photographer) respectively.
Todd Lester writes a monthly blog post on RU’s Dialogues detailing the preparation and implementation of Lanchonete.org, a 5-year residency project in Sao Paulo.
Lanchonete.org celebrates São Paulo‘s ubiquitous lunch counters and their role in the life of the Center. Lanchonete.org invites a group of international artists to reside in – and thus develop a relationship with – the Center of São Paulo, its citizens, institutions, issues and patterns. Begun as a research process, the project materializes into a community-owned restaurant over its five-year duration, and leaves behind a management structure - Associação Espaço Cultural Lanchonete - to contend with the inherent responsibilities of such an endeavor.
