Rita Ferreira is a designer and a publisher from Portugal. Her work is focused on an editorial practice, from content editing to graphical conception. She founded “O Bomfim”, a small independent newspaper that tells the stories and portrays the people from her neighborhood, Bonfim, a traditionally industrial area in the East of Porto. She works closely with SOS Racismo, a Portuguese NGO, being part of the MICAR team (Anti-Racist Cinema Festival), in the film curation and materials design.
About the project
“Coral” is a project that aims to document and resonate the stories from the diaspora and/or non-Eurocentric speakers in Berlin, told in foreign dialects and creoles. For this purpose, “Coral” will be looking for people willing to share their voices: migrants, refugees, BIPoC, LGBTQIA+, sex workers, people with disabilities, etc. — in an intersectionality matter.
This project will unfold in two mediums: a sound installation that echoes these people’s voices; and a map, tracing their steps in the city.
The Portuguese term Coral borrows its name from the small sea animals that secrete a hard and stony substance, but also alludes to choral music, music sung by two or more voices assigned to each part.
