We promote individual and collective experiences, ranging from workshops, talks and experiments to conferences, exhibitions and festivals, to expand ideas around representation and participation. We are nourished by intersections that bring back affective memories and we challenge the Western perspectives that ignores the South American as part of global diasporic conversations. We are a Black Brazilian encyclopedia based in Dublin (Ireland) and Salvador (Brazil). We promote knowledge exchange to change the status-quo.

WHO WE ARE

Turbante-se is a contemporary Brazilian Afrodiasporic platform of art, design and memory, whose central narrative takes place using turbans and headwraps as a tool, promoting conversations, deep exchanges, and connection between communities. We've been building these bridges through workshops, lectures, performances, and experimentation in art and design. The platform was founded in 2012 by interdisciplinary artist Thaís Muniz, in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
