and local production
We are a company that likes to help other companies and institutions with our knowledge about the Amazon. Be it inspiring for new creations, expanding the vision to see new job opportunities, creating bonds between people of different realities, taking out of the comfort zone to face new fronts or just designing the logistics of projects and events. Each "job" is an universe, a challenge that we carry out with great pleasure.
check SOME personalized EXPERIENCES AND local PRODUCTIONS we've done
We produce several "foot in the sand" events in the Alter do Chão region, in partnership with the communities. They are weddings, fraternization of companies or institutions, birthdays, etc. Culturally this type of party is called Piracaia, in the indigenous language "pira" means fish and "caia" party. It's the way the local people celebrate, we just patted our faces.
