Françoise Nielly

Françoise Nielly didn't come from a tough background. She grew up in South of France, between Cannes and Saint-Tropez. Her paintings, though, exhibits a brute force. What fascinating colours and expressions.

Fashion Made in Prison

Cultural centre Itaú in São Paulo organised a fashion show days before the opening of São Paulo Fashion Week. The difference is the outfits below were made by 70 female prisoners from Butantã's Prison. "To create and produce something makes me feel free. It's like being back to society." said one of the designers. The initiative is from the ngo FNAP. The foundation ensures that in 18 months, none of the prisoners who participated in the project have committed any crime since they left prison.

Stool Lady

This lady walks around the streets of Recife, in Brazil, selling stools. She collects wood from a landfill, cuts it at a friend's workshop and paint it, transforming the dirty wood into small stools which she sells for 5 reais (2,50 euros). The difference is that she sings to sell them. And she has one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard.
Please share this video. A record company should hear this and help this woman.
