A Gente Transforma

Várzea Queimada, Piauí – Foto: Tatiana Cardeal

Durante a pesquisa sobre design brasileiro que comecei com a minha tese de mestrado conheci vários designers que, em todo o país, têm trabalhado em projectos de “design com comunidades”. Com equipas, filosofias, abordagens e taxas de sucesso muito diversas – de que já abordei em palestras e neste artigo para a revista Projeto Design –, estes projectos têm mostrado ser uma componente importante da prática do design no Brasil do século XXI. A Gente Transforma é o mais ambicioso e potencialmente influente destes projectos.

Conheci o designer Marcelo Rosenbaum no Salão Casa Brasil Design em Bento Gonçalves, Rio Grande do Sul, durante a minha viagem de pesquisa em 2009. Desde então tenho acompanhado o seu trabalho, escrito sobre ele e, talvez menos que gostaria, conversado sobre o seu o impacto da sua actividade, tanto dentro como fora do Brasil.

Após o seu convite para se juntar a ele e à equipa AGT no Piauí, durante as duas primeiras semanas de Fevereiro tivemos várias oportunidades para conversar em Várzea Queimada, a povoação do Piauí que recebeu a segunda edição do A Gente Transforma. Enquanto jornalista, fiz parte da sua “comitiva” de cerca de 40 pessoas que pensou, discutiu, projectou, escreveu, filmou, fotografou, dançou, rezou, teceu, construiu, bebeu e partilhou de uma experiência inesquecível.

Lá pude também acompanhar de perto um destes projectos de designers “com comunidades”, e compreender, ao vivo e em directo, as relações e expectativas criadas entre designers e artesãos, mestres e estudantes de arquitectura, entre os de fora e os da terra. E entre o passado, o presente e o futuro daquilo que se projecta e se executa. Algumas coisas ficaram mais claras, mas muitas outras complicaram-se. Ninguém disse que a Várzea Queimada ia ser fácil de entender – e não foi.

Um dos dois artigos que escrevi sobre o projecto saiu domingo, dia 26 de Fevereiro na Pública. Pode ser lido na íntegra no site do AGT ou aqui ao lado. O segundo sairá em Abril.

    If your girl is always getting jealous, cuts you off from every single female in your
    life (including your mother and best friends) then it’s time to
    re-evaluate the relationship. Not many have the god gifted
    ability of making films of such caliber as Priyadarshan makes.
    To add to the films entertaining star cast, there is Katrina Kaif in the movie, who
    will be playing Akshay’s love interest in the movie.

    Liberty Belle is roommates with the person who
    my friend Paul visited in Birmingham. Watching all the
    Housewives shows and seeing this epidemic of women, (mostly
    in their 40s and up,) take on this almighty bitchy behavior, you see it
    more and more all around us.
