It felt like we were really there! This truly brought a new perspective on Brazilian culture – and our own. Now we’re curious what else we can explore.

Summary: Itacaré is a small surf and fishing town in Bahia, Brazil. Teacher Jill takes us on a tour of the main street in the town as we see evidence of a cultural history that includes Brazilian, Hawaiian, African, Rasta, Portuguese, Israeli and Japanese cultures. How do you define a cultural identity that is so very diverse? How is this idea connected to your own culture?

Up to 100 participants via Zoom Webinar or one full class via standard video conferencing call.

  • Discuss the term “culture.” What examples of culture do you see in Itacaré?
