A favela modelled on those in the city of Rio de Janeiro is being built in south London this summer.
As part of Horniman Museum's Festival of Brasil, a model favela, or shanty town, will be installed in the museum's gardens for two months. It's created by Project Morrinho, a social and cultural project from the Laranjeiras neighbourhood of Rio, where young people build intricate models of the favelas they grew up in.
Alongside the installation, exhibition Favela: Joy And Pain In The City shows the reality of life in Rio de Janeiro's favelas, through photos taken by three people who live there.
Live Forró music, street performers, traditional dancing, Brazilian films and jazz concerts complete the festival's impressive programme, with events for visitors of all ages.
We're particularly looking forward to photography display Fauna Brazil, which shows off some of the country's impressive wildlife.
The climax to the Rio summer is the Horniman Carnival on 4 September, when a parade, stalls, samba dancing, pop-up performances and Brazilian food see the festival go out with a bang.
Festival Of Brasil takes place 3 July-4 September. See individual event pages for price and booking information.
