Prints For Sale until Christmas

For a limited period until Christmas, we are offering prints for sale. These are high-quality professional prints as displayed in the Heart of Brazil Exhibition, and can be supplied at sizes up to A2 (594mm x 420mm). Proceeds from the sale will go entirely to Indigenous Peoples’ Cultural Support Trust to finance projects in the Xingu region.

The minimum payment for each print is £150, though we would naturally appreciate any additional donation above this figure. You can select any image from the Photo Galleries in the links on the right-hand side of this page. Price includes delivery by Royal Mail in the UK; for overseas, please let us know what method of delivery you require so that we can quote you the additional cost.

To order prints, find the picture you want in the Photo Galleries and click on “To purchase a print click here” in the top right-hand corner. In the email this opens, send us details of which image number you require (shown underneath the picture), your name, address and email address, the size of print, and your preference for gloss or semi-gloss finish. We will reply to confirm your selection and to arrange payment.

These prints make great Christmas presents. Each print will be accompanied by a certificate showing that proceeds will be used by IPCST to finance projects, so you will be giving your friends and family something of intrinsic value, while also supporting a very worthwhile cause.

Fund-Raising Event: 18th October 2007

Next Thursday evening, the last day of the Heart of Brazil exhibition which is currently running at Gallery 32, 32 Green Street, London W1, we will be holding a joint fund-raising event with Rainforest Concern in the gallery. There will be caipirinhas, and you will have the opportunity to meet Sue and Patrick Cunningham.

The event will include an auction of some of the photographs featured in the exhibition.

We are suggesting a donation of £20 at the door, which will be split between Indigenous People’s Cultural Support Trust and Rainforest Concern.

This will be a fun event with a lively crowd of people, and everyone is welcome.

Bach, Burridge and Into the Amazon Update

The time has been changed; the concert now starts at 6:00 instead of 6:30. Emily, Sue and Patrick look forward to seeing you there.

Bach, Burridge and into the Amazon at Gallery 32

Emily Burridge, founder of IPCST, will perform “Bach, Burridge and into the Amazon” at 6:00 pm on 17th October at Gallery 32; take this opportunity to view the exhibition and to see Emily bring a fresh new twist to dance movements from J.S. Bach’s solo ‘cello suite in G major, interweaving them with her own compositions which are inspired by her experiences of the Xavante Indians. The work uses the latest music technology to create a full hour of inspiring music.

Back in the UK; The Heart of Brazil Exhibition at Gallery 32

We left a cold, winter Rio de Janeiro to return to a colder, summer(!) London. In Brazil we gave interviews to several newspapers, including O Liberal in Belém, Correio Brazilense in Brasilia and O Globo. Full-page articles have already been published in the first two, with O Globo still to go. We also gave a 20-minute radio interview on Radio National Amazonas.Back in the UK, we are very busy preparing for the exhibition, which will open on 9th October at Gallery 32, next door to the Brazilian Embassy on Green Street, London W1K 7AT. Contact the Embassy for opening times on 020 7399 9282. While the exhibition is on, we (Sue and Patrick) will be available by prior arrangement to talk to groups about the expedition and our work; we are especially interested in talking to school, college and university groups. These talks can be quite informal, and can be arranged at short notice by phoning the Embassy on the number above, or Sue and Patrick on 020 8541 3024.Sue will be giving a talk at the Southern region of the Royal Geographical Society at Camford School, Dorset on the 27th September.
