What is the Traveling Seminar?

Your Traveling Seminar is a weeklong journey to Salvador da Bahia. As a former port of entry for slaves, Salvador da Bahia maintains a strong presence of African culture. It’s the perfect place to examine Brazil’s ethnic diversity, and study the history and social dynamics of African influences on Brazilian culture.

The Traveling Seminar is about learning by experiencing. Visit an NGO launched by former street kids, that helps street kids. Tour a church, built by African slaves for their own worship. See a performance by the Folkloric Ballet of Salvador. Hear an expert on Candomblé, an Afro-Brazilian religion. Watch a street drum performance. Cook ceremonial foods.
