Since 2009, he has been working on non-formal education in contexts of social vulnerability or political disputes, such as Fundação CASA, Cracolândia and hostels. By operating in these contexts serves as a research and often activation of his work[s]. His research addresses[is about/talk about/deals with] sensitive issues in contemporary issues such as homeless people, drug users, criminalization of peripheral groups and social class discussions from a non-moral perspective[vision/point of view]. In this way, he uses the institutions and his works as tools and education mediating the spaces inside and outside the circuit.
