Festival Agora stimulates an exchange of experiences, creating and strengthening connections, while it contributes to the critical reflection and analysis regarding gender inequality and the fight against sexism. Through visual culture, dialogues, workshops, poetry and music, the theme of the 200 years of Brazilian Independence was addressed, highlighting the pioneer heroines and the appearance of women in the public world.
To re-signify the idea of independence as a revolution, we sought the urban public space as a territory for artistic intervention. As a result, we created an identity with strong typography combining Agharti, Wallnutt Corps and Right Grotesk for a direct communication that visually translates the name “agora” into a sense of urgency. The powerful messages of the festival were conveyed through flags, raised as a symbol of resistance and popular call.
