SDG #11 - Indigenous Voices with Thiago Jesus

Thiago Jesus is a senior project manager at People’s Palace Projects, an arts organisation based at Queen Mary University of London, working on cross-cultural initiatives between Brazil and the UK. One of his current projects is an ongoing programme of artistic residencies for cultural preservation at the Kuikuro indigenous territory in the Xingu, Amazon region. Since its start, Thiago has produced 3 expeditions to the region, a BBC World Service radio documentary and various exhibitions including an immersive VR experience raising awareness of these populations. Thiago strives to conceive and deliver projects which utilise the arts to alleviate social crises.
