With the goal to feed the Exchange of knowledge and experiences, the Guri Program promotes on a yearly basis the Cultural Interchange of Centers, uniting students from most of the cities where the Guri Program has Centers of Musical Education.
In the events, the participants perform to the other students from the other education centers a varied repertoire, as an example of the content learned during the classes. The arrangements of the songs were developed by professionals that work in the Guri Program and the conducting of the songs is done by instructors that act alongside the children.
The executive director of the Guri´s Friends Association, Alessandra Costa, observes that the Cultural Interchange of Centers offers the exchange of experiences among the Guri Program students, it amplifies the universe of references of those involved and it promotes the integration between them. This gathering not only allows the students to discover the diversity of their own realities, but also reinforces the main characteristic of the project, which is the social and cultural inclusion though the teaching of music”.
