Ignored by society and considered nothing more than thieves and drug addicts, street children and teens are a common sight in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Through street poetry and painting, the "Street Art with Street Kids" project aims to give these youth the opportunity to work with professional artists to express their thoughts, dreams, and their humanity to their fellow citizens, defying the stereotypes against them.

This short trailer shows a pilot project in Rio de Janeiro at the end of 2011. It's our hope to return with a much larger project, incorporating street art, poetry, public performances and film making.
