"In the first week of work, proposed, as a way to get to know each other better, that we would all work on a project to be entered in the BNDES+ Matchfunding edict 2020. We were able to develop in a few days and more than 20 hands the project Digitization of the Ema Klabin Collection, finished in 7 August. The project was selected, we count on the generous contribution of 222 supporters and part of this year's cultural activities are taking place thanks to the funds raised.

We continue to seek to connect these elements to the contemporary world and, now, we face the digital reality", comments Paulo, who developed, in the pandemic period, as exposições digitais “Ballad of Terror and 8 Variations ", by Maria Bonomi, "War Disasters", de Francisco de Goya e "The Spanish Forger", this last one published last May.
