In the context of pandemic and quarantine, Redes da Maré, in partnership with People's Palace Projects organization, visual artist Tatiana Altberg and researcher Raquel Tamaio launched the ‘Maré From Home’ project, sharing in a virtual publication what Maré residents see from their windows, through photographs and texts gathered in the essay ‘Through my window’.



Every month there will be a public vote. The five authors of the most voted photos and texts will win a prize and a highlight on the website. CHECK THE WEBSITE!

In addition, over four months, a group of six young people from Maré, formed by Christine Jones, Fagner França, Jailton Nunes, Jonas Willame, Juliana de Oliveira and Larisse Paiva, will share their diaries, composed of photographs and texts about their daily lives during quarantine.





If you are a resident of Maré, send a photo and a short text telling what you see or don't see from your window. If you can, also tell how the quarantine has been for you, how the pandemic has interfered with your life, how you feel.

Send your photo and text to Whatsapp (55 21) 97205.0989 or email

We invite you to look, read and imagine what you see from the many windows of Maré:
