    Rio Artists Occupation


    Rio Artists Occupation

    30 ground-breaking Rio artists occupy the vibrant streets, stages and squares of London during the London 2012 Olympic Games, working across the capital with UK-based artists as part of the London 2012 Festival.

    Based at Battersea Arts Centre and performing in venues across London from the V&A to V22, the summer is arrived and so did the Brazilians!

    This month-long occupation kicked off with a big Brazilian party thrown at Battersea Arts Centre featuring film, theatre and music. Guests were encouraged to grab a caipirinha, explore the building and enjoy the best Rio had to offer all wrapped up in one long party.
