Our Values

Community

Community

Our first core value is to unite the samba community in Brisbane and South East Queensland under a common Unidos de Brisbane banner. To unite Brazilians living in Brisbane with Brisbanites who have fallen in love with Brazillian culture, to form a cultural arts collective.

Culture

Culture

Our second core value is culture. Unidos de Brisbane aim to be a vehicle for the promotion of traditional and authentic Brazilian culture in Brisbane. We provide an opportunity for locals and expats to immerse themselves and their families in the culture of samba and the Brazilian arts.

Education

Education

Our third core value is learning and education. We aim to learn and teach others about Brazilian arts and culture through samba, dance, drumming and Portuguese. This provides an opportunity to foster a collaborative learning environment where community members can come together to share knowledge.
