Objects hold human stories behind them, being either through the people who owned them or through the people who make them. I've tailored a fluid script of artisans' businesses' stories. A visit to the artisans' fair of the "Antique Rio" at the Lavradio Street, which completes 25 years of existence and refers to a century-old tradition of commerce in the Antique Trade Hub and Gastronomic circuit. The collection of antique pieces from all over the place is found in local establishments that open their doors to a gastronomic and cultural menu of activities. As we walk down the street the stalls display their colourful items in a mosaic of life that reveals personal stories in each item traded. The passion of its artisans is contagious as we reveal a little of these stories on a 1-hour walk through the fair. Expect a handful of art, crafts, design, antiques at the Old Town's cultural hub on a fun Saturday street fair. Come with us on this fun walk every first Saturday of each month!
Welcome on board! I'm Kelly Tavares, the founder of Rio Encantos Experiences. I'm a native Carioca (the name given to people who were born in Rio de Janeiro) and I love to connect local and travellers to share their passions and stories. I invite you to try out the unexpected, to feel the vibes and experience the lush scenery of Rio. Come with us and live each moment with enthusiasm, worshiping life with passion and connecting. Storyteller, arts educator, and tour guide, three main activities that Kelly Tavares has been practicing for years. Photography, art living, and traveling three hobbies she has cultivated since graduation at the University of Fine Arts, in Brazil. I am a Community Cultural Producer and multicultural facilitator, three professional activities which have been part of my life since graduation from the University of Oregon, USA. I work with love for the causes I believe and I will share unforgettable moments with amazing people, through authentic experiences, mixing present and past, personal and cultural history, on a bit of everything you can imagine.
