Launched in June 2015, FVA Space is located in Novo Airão, 190 kilometers away from Manaus by car (100km away by boat), the starting point of FVA’s expeditions in Rio Negro with our institutional boat Uapé-Açu. The Space is a center for social and environmental experiences that support initiatives of Rio Negro communities. In addition, Space FVA serves the population of Novo Airão, FVA partners and other audiences’ beneficiaries of FVA’s projects.
On a 5,000-square-meter plot donated by Novo Airão’s City Hall in the 1990s, there are two main buildings with accommodations, a room for lectures and courses, art exhibitions, photography, film shows, among other activities. This infrastructure were made possible with the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (USA) and Fundo Vale (Brazil).
