    Hummingbird spreads its wings to surrounding communities.

    A recent development of the Hummingbird Project started last year during school holidays, Beija-Flor na Comunidade or Hummingbird in the Community, literally means that we take most of the activities from our Hummingbird Arts and Cultural Activity Centre to the children and young people in surrounding communities instead of them coming to us.

    The programme is an important step towards implanting smaller nuclei in underprivileged communities, from where the populations have limited access to our regular Activity Centre, either due to distance, safety or lack of transport. Another important reason for the project is to facilitate the reproduction of our prevention methodology by youth community mobilisers and mentors trained at Hummingbird; Everyone a Changemaker.

    See the slideshow from last year's programme.

      @Pequena Verena,
      I'm using several adjustments in PhotoShop; levels, curves, shadows/highlights, brightness and contrast, then to finish cleaning up any "noise", I use the NoiseNinja Plug-In for PhotoShop.

      I understand your observation; two contrasting realities, which sorry to say, many of our Brazilian population must face. But the struggle for survival in utmost poverty does not deter them from enjoying what little life otherwise has to offer.
      In all that material misery, Brazilians have an incredible ability to surpass some of their greatest difficulties with their heads raised and a smile on their faces. I admire them a great deal for this wonderful aptitude.

      I've started a new group called "Eye to Eye: Interaction in Photography" and think this photo would be a great addition. Please check it out.

      ...and spread the group's name around to anyone who you think would have photos as great as yours to contribute. Thanks.
