All the activities of the non-profit association Inspirar-te are destined for children in a position of social vulnerability, in a one-to-one relationship, which means that for each child from a private school that is impacted by Inspirar-te, one child from a public school is also benefited with the same cultural experience and through the funding of sociocultural programs in communities, like the community of Heliópolis - the largest favela in Latin America.

Art amplifies our repertoire, stimulates critical thinking, and puts us in touch with diversity. With this in mind, driven by restlessness, Inspirar-te has become the necessary bridge between schools and cultural institutions.

One cannot speak of the power of art without speaking of its democratic aspect; or at least shouldn't. Likewise, one cannot speak of the importance of education in building a society without it being effectively accessible to all. In favor of a democratic cultural orientation, the fruits of art education must be reaped by all. This is Inspirar-te's mission.

With the exhibition “Egito Antigo na cidade do sol”, we were able to apply everything we have always believed in on an exceptional scale. Embraced by great supporters, we were able to impact thousands of people from different locations and social strata. And not just with expressive numbers, but the quality and integrity of our work always prevailed.

Watching a child get emotional when entering the exhibition room; talking to a student at the end of the visit and hearing about how thankful he was because it was his first time at an exhibition; receive a statement from a teacher saying that his students had been enraptured and wanted to carry on with the theme when they returned to the classroom; these were some of our experiences with the public that we received daily for months. Hearing words like this from one person alone would be powerful enough, but knowing that the initiative made this experience possible for so many is truly moving.

This is our essence as an association, and it was based on this that we were able to carry out the exhibition in such a unique way. Cultural access transforms lives, this is what we witness on a daily basis, and democratic art and education must go hand in hand, enabling everyone to enjoy its impact without distinction.

We are specialists in educational exhibitions in partnership with national and international museums. We expand the concept of art education by transforming perspectives and generating social impact through unique didactic exhibitions. Check out more about the exhibition “Egito Antigo na cidade do sol”.



We believe in art as a tool of social transformation, and we are here to promote the connection between art and education, thus expanding the way children see others and build their world. Our business is to teach, sensitize and amuse.

Art has the potential to play a decisive role in child development, promoting essential values like diversity and empathy, besides boosting creativity and critical thinking.


We founded Inspirar-te to turn art into a possible, charming path, and use this tool to enrich individuals and the community as a whole. We also intend to promote access to art, paving the way for the construction of new cultural habits since childhood.



100% of the profit with Inspirar-te’s activities goes to children in a position of social vulnerability so that they can visit museums and have access to the same cultural experiences as others. For us, there is no distinction between these children, and this is our way to contribute to a fairer, more inclusive society.

In order to construct this worldview, we offer cultural experiences for children in:




“Inspirar-te is extremely useful and the social benefit which you deliver is very admirable indeed. Thank you all for this detailed feedback on the benefits of the project which we joined forces on. From our point of view, it was extremely beneficial to our pupils as well and we certainly look forward to further collaborations next year. We are also really proud to be associated with this initiative.”

Siobhain Allum, Head of Prep School, St Paul's School São Paulo

“All trips were very well organized and thoughtfully planned to cater for the different age groups and to make connections with their topic learning back in the classroom. The children were inquisitive and became deeply involved in the interactive activities based on the paintings. the children all made comments about how much fun it was and many said they were going to get their parents to take them back. In my experience it was the best trip I have been on taking children to museums because of the preparation done before hand by Inspirar-te.”

Lisa Blackaby, Arts Teacher, St Paul's School


“Projects like Inspirar-te are relevant for the society, given that they work as a complement to school, as a non-formal means of education, in an extremely effective way, with an exchange of new worlds, and an expansion of cultural and thematic horizons.”
Guilherme Pacheco, Educational Nucleus Coordinator, MIS

“Visiting the Baccarelli Institute and working with young people was one of the most inspiring experiences of my life. Their concentration, commitment, passion, and determination were incomparable. These musicians reminded me that music is truly enriching for life and surpasses all barriers - social, geographical and linguistic. I'm so glad I had the chance to meet these young musicians and share my love of music with them. It was a real honor.”

Nicole Wilson - principal violinist - Royal Academy of Music

Testimonial collected after the visit carried out by Inspirarte, which promoted the exchange between the Instituto Baccarelli and the Royal Academy of Music, a renowned institution in London dedicated to the training of classical music

"Spending time at the Instituto Baccarelli was both inspirational and humbling. The quality and caliber of the music and teaching was incredibly high and impressive. Despite extraordinarily challenging circumstances around the Instituto, you are immediately struck by the warm and supportive atmosphere all around the buildings. The work that the Inspirar-te Project do to support the work of the Baccarelli is first-class. I very much hope to continue being connected with both the project and the Baccarelli."

Howard Ionascu, Director of Junior Academy - Royal Academy of Music

"Art for me is what permeates life and enables the evolution of humanity. Art
it is a tool for social transformation. The synergy that exists between Instituto Baccarelli and Inspirarte will be fundamental for us to further develop these young people's field of vision."

Edmilson Venturelli, Director of Institutional Relations at Instituto Baccarelli


“I've always taken the children to the museum, but it's essential that the school takes them and, above all, bridges the gap between art and the concepts that children are learning at school. My son loved it and came back super excited.”
Monize Vasques, mother of a 7-year-old student

“This initiative is really fantastic, taking children out of the classroom to experience art! They have a chance to explore the five senses by gaining culture and knowledge. That way, they will never forget what they learned.”
Priscilla Cunningham, mother of 9-year-old student

“I loved the Inspirar-te experience from the beginning! Congratulations for the sensitivity with which they work and for their seriousness and consistency. My daughter had the opportunity to go to the Pinacoteca with you and what she brought home was a rich and well-crafted experience. It was not just another visit to a museum.”

Heloisa Whately, mother of a 9-year-old student

“I thought the idea of taking the children to an exhibition and being able to work on the theme that was being discussed at school was barbaric. My daughters, who are in different years, each one came back with something new to tell! They came back super excited and happy!

And wanting to go back! Congratulations to the organizers for the incredible experience.”

Roberta Guimarães, mother of students aged 9 and 11


“I really liked the Pinacoteca! The place was cool and I wanted to see more things there.”

Gabriela, 8 years old, St Paul's School

“I liked it because the museum was so big and the educators were so much fun. My favorite part was when we had to make a fabric sculpture to form a person.”
Helena, 9 years old, St Paul's School

“I enjoyed painting there at Oca with the kids because it's fun. The work that I liked the most in the museum was Jesus Rafael Soto's Virtual Cube because it looks like a Rubik's Cube when you look at it from all sides. It was a new experience and I want to do it more often.”

Anne, age 8, St Paul's School
