Cocktail Party with the Secretariat of Tourism in Rio Scenariumm
A cocktail party was thrown on behalf of Rio’s Secretariat of Tourism on November 26 at Rio Scenarium in Lapa. This was a gathering for all of those working on projects for local social responsibility that were promoted by SETUR throughout 2008.
Present at the gathering were various representatives from the Secretariat of Tourism and, of course, our beloved NGO Morrinho with the project Turismo at Morrinho, which was awarded an office to welcome tourists at the Morrinho model.
Remember that the project Tourism at Morrinho was one of the award-winning projects for the Ministry of Tourism and will receive a grant in 2009 in partnership with the NGO Lunuz. With this grant, Morrinho plans to build offices that will facilitate another branch of the NGO, which is Morrinho Social.

Adopt a Child For This Christmas!!!
The Association of Residents and Friends of the Vila Pereira da Silva, which was founded in February of 1980, has been at their new address since February 16 of this year.
We hope that this will attract old and new partners for the community.
The new director Mrs. Kelly Martins de Oliveira is proud to announce that in a mere eight months she has implemented such projects as building a cover for the sports square, constructing a Cultural Center, setting up a recycling program, cleaning and organizing the associated containers and trash bins, and a spearheaded a joint effort to combat dengue.
Although it is a bit early to start thinking about Christmas, we want to make sure to start early in order to be able to accomplish our goals. As such, we would like to start the idea of Godfathers or Godmothers for Christmas for our children.
We have set up for a distribution of 300 toys donated by community resident and various partners. We plan to link kids from the ages of one month to 12 years with an adoptive parent who would be responsible for that child’s gift. Suggested gifts are cloths or shoes (or both). Donations can be left at the NGO Morrinho.
The intention of this is to promote action and unity amongst the community, in addition to taking care of the local youth.
Please know that this project is open to anyone and we thank you in advance for your participation!

Review of The Documentary “God Knows Everything But Is No Snitch”
“Favela being an exported product or a game is art”
October 3, 2008
Who would every say that a bit of earth, toy cars, and pieces of Lego could be transformed in to a work of art as interesting and institutionalized as the Morrinho showing – “God Knows Everything, But Is Not A Snitch” (2008). The documentary film by Fábio Gavião and Markão Oliveira tell the fun history of Morrinho, which is what a lot of people call a model (or an installation depending on which of the various events it has been exhibited), but in actuality it is a huge game constructed in 2001 by eight boys from the favela Pereira da Silva (or Pereirão for those who know it well). Morrinho reproduces their own community with bricks broken in half to look like shacks, and pieces of Lego to represent the community residents. In 2001, the “game” starting gaining fame and made a huge leap in the international exhibition circuit when it was present at the 52nd Biennial of Venice in 2007 (which was a reproduction made by the creators of the original Morrinho – as it must be clearly states, the original artwork is never moved). Along the passing of years, Morrinho has grown as its creators have grown up. It has been influenced by the various changes and influences that its creators have also experienced.
Not a single way that I could describe here would give a semblance to the true visual impact that Morrinho causes. It is obvious that what I write in not a perfect reproduction, but I am to capture the essence of not only of Pereirão, but of all of the favelas – and film works toward this goal. The lack of inhibition of the guys involved in the project is also important in creating a light and unpretentious environment that makes it easy to talk about serious issues (such as drug trafficking, social exclusion, conflicts between different favelas, and basically all of the violence involved in favela life) creates a film with a strong message. Everything is possible at Morrinho – dances, police invasion, demonstration – everything is presented in a simple manner with this method of communication and representation. And the result is surprising. Merely with painted bricks and Lego, situation such as baile funk and the representation of a protest among residents with the closing of a bridge and direct confrontation with the police.
Another huge merit of the film is that it does not treat favela life as it should not be addressed. The film does not make assumptions about the problems of those that live in the favela, nor does it make any value judgments. The film gives its viewer direct access to what the residents of Pereirão really think and how their world works. In this way, through Lego toys, we see a carefree description of what happens to those who don’t “walk the line”, or how some problems are resolves within the community. Cest la vie.
The recordings of the group’s trip (the eight boys and the directors of the film the make up the NGO Morrinho) are extremely fun, yet inspiring, thanks to the spontaneity of the boys. On this trip, it was possible to see the reaction that Italians, French and Spanish had toward Morrinho’s work (which was a completely different reaction to what we Brazilians have). And it was also possible to understand the relationship of the boys themselves with their work.
In their own original path, Morrinho – “God Knows Everything But Is No Snitch” deals with disenfranchised communities like so many other documentaries, but it does not give a view from above looking down on favela life. In addition, the film does not try to push the artistic of sociological theories. It addresses Morrinho as it is in its essence: a child’s game – and maybe it is for this reason that it is such and interesting piece of work.

Inauguration of Morrinho’s Touristic and Cultural Space
Today at 10:00 PM at the Morrinho was inaugurated at a Touristic and Cultural Center. Present were the Secretary of Tourism, Mr. Paulo Bastos, the committee of the Secretariat of Tourism and all of those involved in the construction of the model, including the younger generation.
The event was open to the community and offered chocolate cake, hot dogs, and soft drink to celebrate this very important moment for Tourism at Morrinho and for the Vila Pereira da Silva.
I would like to thank the Secretariat of Tourism for the support, and Fábião Gavião and Markão Oliveira for NGO Morrinho, that allowed us today’s opportunity to be able to explore new projects, and to develop the space as one of sustainable political correctness among different sectors to better distribute the product and to create opportunities. Thanks also to the creators of the game that today was transformed into the dream of any person in having a place like Morrinho close to their homes. A special thanks to João Vergara for having introduced me to Project Morrinho for and having given me the opportunity to work with him in constructing a more appropriate future for everyone. Finally, thank you to all of the partners, agencies and operators that believed in the product of Morrinho Tourism.
When we started out on a project such as this one, the goal was to transform Morrinho into a model project to develop Community Based Tourism into a Carioca community. And as such, adding to the touristic attractions of Santa Teresa - my great academic and practical goal. Today I am certain that this is a project of love that moves people to build a better world to transform as small community, into a neighborhood, a city, a state, a country – and but yet, why not a better world?Thank you to all of those involved in this process for everything that we have gone through, from what we’ve learned, cultural exchanges among friends, shared spaces and respect earned through hard work and by discovering that there are definitely heroes at Morrinho! Contrary to what is said about Morrinho, there is no space for heroes, along this road I learned that the biggest heroes of Morrinho reside within each one of you that took an initiative to this fascinating game of live art. Congratulations guys!
