Who we are
With over 51 thousand students distributed through the state of São Paulo, the Projeto Guri is considered to be the largest social and cultural program of Brazil. Ever since 1995 it has continually been offering courses of musical theory and initiation, choir singing and string, percussion and woodwind instruments during the non-school hours. That has been the main action the Associação de Amigos do Projeto Guri(AAPG) has been coordinating, whose mission is to promote, with excellence, musical education and the collective practice of music, taking into account the human development of generations in upbringing.
An incentive of the government of the State of São Paulo, the Projeto Guri is currently administrated by two social organizations linked to the State Secretariat of Culture. There are 366 distributed in 310 municipalities in the interior and along the coast of the state, with more than 40 thousand guris, which are directed by the AAPG, while the management of the units from the capital, with more than 11 thousand guris, is done by the Santa Marcelina Social Organization of Culture. The shared management structure of the Projeto Guri answers to a resolution of the Secretariat that regulates partnerships between the government and legal entities of private right for actions in the cultural area.
The Associação de Amigos do Projeto Guri (AAPG), a social organization of culture, shares the management of the Projeto Guri with the State Secretariat of Culture since 2004. Besides the State government, the project counts on the support of the City Halls, social organizations, companies and individuals.
