PIPA Prize 2022 nominee

Founded in 2017, Coletivo Quariterê has the mission of proposing, debating, influencing and monitoring public policies at the municipal and state levels that converge in affirmative actions for the inclusion of Black professionals throughout the production chain of the audiovisual segment. The name Quariterê was chosen in honor of the Quilombo do Quariterê, located in the region of Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade, the first capital of the state of Mato Grosso.

The history of the quilombo and of its queen Teresa de Benguela, with her heroic resistance and leadership, were inspirations for the creation of this collective of quilombos, to welcome, inspire, strengthen and add Black professionals in the audiovisual sector of Mato Grosso.
