Tias do Bonfim

since 2017
Tias help parents.

Tias do Bonfim are people concerned with education and childcare. We aim to create alternative paths to cultivate holistic care policies in nurseries, schools and educational contexts.
Our objective is to diminish the lack of politics of sensitivity basing our projects in the intersection of learning requirements and the will of each child and parent. We invent formulas to approach adults and children and unite them under the degrowth movement umbrella. We try to fill in the gaps of what people want and need from education.
Tia is someone willing to learn with a child and willing to teach the child to learn.
Tia is someone who sees children and adults as humans only distant by time and wishes to share ways of thinking, talking and acting.
Tias do Bonfim are keen on artistic practices towards the performance and intervention in beauty and are respectful about the resources of it.
