Home Is Where The Heart Is

Artisans from the Home Is Where The Heart Is collection and eight groups from Mariana and Barra Longa participate in the event, enhancing Minas Gerais traditional handicrafts.

Between December 7th and 12th, the artisans of the Home Is Where The Heart collection plus eight groups from Mariana and Barra Longa (MG) will participate in the 32nd edition of the Handicrafts Fair at Expominas, in the Gameleira district, in Belo Horizonte. With the theme Rotas do Brasil – Handicrafts, Tourism and Gastronomy, the event features musical attractions, conversation circles and workshops. The fair will be open from Tuesday to Friday, from 2 pm to 10 pm; Saturday, from 10 am to 10 pm; and Sunday, from 10 am to 9 pm. Tickets start at R$12.50 and can be purchased on the website

Curated by Ronaldo Fraga, the Home Is Where The Heart Is collection will have an exclusive stand at the fair. On the 7th, at 4 pm, the stylist from Minas Gerais will present the products to potential buyers in a business roundtable.

The collection brings together 13 groups of artisans and is part of the Collective Catarse project, carried out by the Renova Foundation in partnership with the Association of General Cultures (ACG). Combining gastronomy with “handmade”, the collection features products that rescue the traditions and singularities of Mariana’s history and the universe of Minas Gerais. The work enabled the reinterpretation and resignification of the artisanal and agricultural products developed by 175 people in the project. The products rescue traditional knowledge and actions through the creative economy and associated local production. 

Eight more groups of artisans from the Minas Gerais municipalities of Mariana and Barra Longa, also supported by the Renova Foundation, will occupy a collaborative space, bringing together projects that work to enhance local culture through handicrafts. 

The fair

After undergoing an adaptation in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the event returns to its original format, with a thousand booths. The expectation is that around 140 thousand people visit the exhibition. To ensure the safety of visitors and exhibitors, during the six days, the fair will follow a protocol for combating the coronavirus, developed in partnership with the City of Belo Horizonte and responsible health agencies.
