Abstract

Through exchanges between religious, scholars and artists from Maranhão (Brazil) and Cuba we want to incite exchange of information and record impressions about the religious, re-thinking the notion of space/identity where the Bantu ancestry markedly both in Brazil and in Cuba is the common thread. The results of these dialogues will be seminars, conversations that foster records audible / visual photographic exhibitions and installations with the use of new technologies, then making room for dialogue between symmetrical makers culture and its surroundings, as well as provide documentation / record intangible assets / materials in specific religious context, both in Cuba and in Brazil, in spaces that were / are historically deprived of access to these technological goods (rural black communities, called “quilombos” and “cabildos”).
