BSA Special Feature: Swoon and The Heliotrope Foundation: A Catalyst For Local Change
Long term economic development? From a Street Artist? Sustainable homes? Jobs? Schools?
Yes, if the question is about Cormiers, Haiti and the answer is Street Artist Swoon with her Heliotrope Foundation. You can draw a direct through-line from her earliest wheatpastes of people on the street to the earthquake surviving Haitians whom these buildings and programs are for and from. By listening, sharing, and working alongside, the volunteers and foundation have been building community. And you thought it was all about vandalism, didn’t you?

In the year of 2018, the Festival brought interventions and other activities to Downtown neighbourhood in Fortaleza, Brazil, called ‘Centro’. The idea was to occupy and reestablish the connection with an area of the city that was once a great place of cultural movement, especially in the city’s ‘Belle Époque’. All this brought color and movement to the local landscapes, realigning the neighbourhood to a greater valorization of urban culture.
