The objective of the poster "African Americans, Indigenous people and Brazil — Dialogues in culture" was to inform the public about a seminar related to the integration of African Americans and Indigenous people into the new curriculum at Brazilian schools.
To communicate this imminent merger of three cultures into one education system, we created a symbolic illustration portraying the head of a Brazilian with three mouths. As well as representing the proposed amalgamation of cultures, it also served to accentuate the varying levels of dialogue around the topic.
