Misá is a painter, sculptress and poetess from Cabo Verde that strives for a cultural bridge between Africa and Europe.
She has been using art to work on the uplift of impoverished and neglected community in Cape Verde called the Rebelados. Through her work and influence the community started art-based businesses and other community improvement projects. Misá is also working at the village Porto Madeira where the aim is to create a more sustainable and developed village through the organization of artistic residencies.
This worldwide prized artist was a partner with us from the first email we sent to her. The idea of bringing the didgeridoo to the communities of Rebelados and Porto Madeira for concerts and community workshops was very well received and we believe we couldn’t have found a better connection in Cabo Verde for our work.
Thank you for your enthusiasm Misá!
