Who we are

Established in Rio de Janeiro in 1998, Instituto Inclusartiz is a non-profit arts organisation dedicated to promoting dialogues between cultural and educational initiatives. The Institute’s guiding objectives are:  

– Promoting social and cultural exchange among Brazilian and international artists, curators and researchers;

– Supporting the educational development of artists and curators in different stages of their professional trajectory;

– Producing exhibitions in Brazil and abroad;

– Publishing art books; and

– Expanding the audience engagement with arts in Brazil through the creation of educational projects that promote social and cultural bonds, bringing together different communities, including those affected by geographical distance and environmental adversities

We are a platform of dialogue between countries and communities, working together with the private and public sectors, developing artistic and cultural projects to strengthen inclusion and exchange.
