Chá com Causos

Launch of Book Glaura: Chá com Causos. Seniors are the target audience of the projectChá com Causos. With a concept of traveling through the museum, its proposal is to socialize the museum space, extending it to the communities of Ouro Preto. The action aims to help consolidate, in the community, the importance of the subject as the author of their own history and mediate relations between this subject and the collection. The idea is to take the participant to think about museums as a place that, by organizing and displaying objects of different temporalities, uses and origins, they try to rebuild and preserve the history of each one of us.

The initiative proposes, accordingly, the valuation of matters of general knowledge, preserving intangible heritage. The project was also conducted at the Cultural Center of Glaura district of Ouro Preto. Through the work developed was generated the book Glaura: Chá com Causos, launched in April 2011 (for sale in the Museu da Inconfidência Shop).

The work contains particulars of legends, cooking, "stories", festivals, beliefs, crafts and folk medicine of the place. It is the result of months of work of the pedagogical sector of Museu da Inconfidência, at the time composed by Ana Maria Laia, Lorene Dutra Moreira e Ferreira, Maria Aparecida Ferreira de Souza and Viviane Michelline Veloso Danese.
