Will be open on Tuesday (5/12), in Curitiba Memorial, the exhibition "Hope in the city", produced by AFD-French Development Agency, with images of six cities on three continents. Curitiba is one of the cities depicted, next to Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), Johannesburg (África do Sul), Kochi (India), Medellin (Colombia) and Fortress (Brasil).
The exhibition was assembled for the Habitat III, United Nations Conference devoted to the construction of a new urban agenda II, held in October 2016. The images reveal the challenges and solutions to urban development, in cities with projects supported by AFD: the vitality of Cochin to Medellin, the smile of the inhabitants of Johannesburg at games of Santo Domingo, the parks of Curitiba to popular neighborhoods of Fortaleza. Are projects that bring us, little by little, a shared world.
In Brazil, the two cities depicted were photographed by photojournalists Jorge Cardoso (Fortress) and Zuleika de Souza (Curitiba).
