Exhibition and book tell the 40 year history of CESE in Brazil

As part of the commemorations of its 40 year history, the Ecumenical Service Coordinator (CESE) will present an exhibition on June 3 of “Human Rights in Images” by artist J. Cunha, in the lobby of the Bahia Legislative Assembly.

Salvador, Friday, May 31, 2013

The exhibition consists of 12 mural paintings inspired by determining social actors and historical moments in the building of democracy in Brazil over the last 40 years. The showing will take place in the House of the People in Bahia, and will continue through June 7, when it will move to São Paulo, and later to Pará and the Federal District. 

The Bahia Legislative Assembly will also host the presentation of the book, Ecumenism and Citizenship: The Pathway of the Ecumenical Service Coordinator. This work will receive an honorary mention in the Special Session of the Bahian Legislature, which will also feature a performance by the Interior Orchestra of Coité, Bahia.  

In its 260 pages, the book presents a panorama of the activities of CESE since it’s founding in 1973, at the height of the military dictatorship, up to the present. The publication registers the support by churches, ecumenical organisms and international cooperation agencies of the social movements in Brazil, in the affirming of human rights in the country. 

In its four decades of work, CESE has supported more than ten thousand projects of popular organizations throughout the Brazilian territory, contributing to the improvement of the quality of life of around 9.5 million people. 

The commemorations will also have an ecumenical thanksgiving service on June 6, in the Archdiocese of Salvador.
