Community Crime Prevention

@ VOL 12 ON SEP 20, 2013

Ricardo Maluf explains the feedback from "B.O. Coletivo," a collective project based on the community input of incident reports. For example, users can point out where they got robbed on a city map and alert other users of recurring crimes in the area. The buzz created by the project was so significant that it caught the attention of politicians and major news platforms.

Satirical Street Art

@ VOL 12 ON SEP 20, 2013

RUA can be viewed as a satirical street art collective. They aim to call attention to urgent matters like infrastructure needs. Their political stand was visible in São Paulo during the protests of June 2013, as their poster "Uma Cidade Muda Não Muda" (roughly translated as "A Mute City Doesn't Change") became the front-piece of the movement.
