SÃO PAULO, colloquially known as SAMPA, or the the “Drizzle Capital” (Capital da Garoa) is a city of superlatives. It is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the southern hemisphere and Americas, and the world's seventh largest city by population.

The COPA CULTURAL tour continues in
SÃO PAULO!

Saturday, Nov 10, from 11a.m. to 1pm
at the Key Biscayne Library
299 Crandon Boulevard, Key Biscayne, FL 33149

The CULTURAL CUP is a yearlong program created by CCBU to explore the diversity and richness of the Brazilian culture through a "cultural tour" of the twelve Brazilian Host Cities of the 2014 Football World Cup. Each month, in partnership with the Miami Dade County Public Library System we present one these cities’ special characteristics, culture, history, music and art.

São Paulo is Brazil’s financial and cultural center. It houses several important monuments and museums, the São Paulo Stock Exchange. The city holds many high profile events like the São Paulo Art Biennial, the Brazil Grand Prix Formula 1 São Paulo, among many others.

It is the most ethnically diverse city in Brazil. Different waves of immigration brought German, Swiss, Portuguese, Italians, Spaniards, Syrian-Lebanese, Japanese, Jews, Chinese, Koreans and, more recently, Bolivians, giving the city its cosmopolitan character.

PROGRAM:

11:00 – 11:15 a.m. - Typical Brazilian refreshments
11:15 - 11:40 a.m. - São Paulo presentation: video / power point, interaction with the audience.
11:40 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. – “Story Circle” for children ages 6 to 9 years old. Interactive reading of the short story “WITHOUT WORDS” by Brazilian award winning writer Beti Rozen and Peter Hays. Without Words is the story of a Brazilian boy who, as so many children in Miami moved to the United States. The book tells his feelings about living in a new country and how he found himself “without words”.
12:10 p.m. to 1 p.m. - Art Workshop for children ages 6 to 9 years old: I AM FROM THE WORLD, I AM FROM (Brazil? Colombia? France? Peru? Spain? Venezuela?)! São Paulo received lots of people who came from different countries. Many in South Florida, also came from a different country and are making a a new life here. In this workshop, each child will create drawings expressing the different aspects of his/her experience moving to a new country. At the end, each child will put together a booklet about her transnational self.
