I’m crowdsourcing to publish a selection of 4CapoeiraThouthts posts and comments in a book. You can help us inspire others capoeiristas to embrace ‘Social Capoeira’ in a few different ways. Have a read through, drop your ideas and get in contact.
The easiest way to help is simply browsing through published posts and comments, and sharing here those you would like to see in a Book. You’re more than welcomed to share ‘how’ you would like this book to come through; both style and content-wise.
If you happen to an editor/publisher and would like to come on board, we have a small team of friends working together to come up with: first, a manuscript; second, ideas for chapters; third, a proposal to be used for submissions. Maybe you are aware of publishing houses to which we could send our proposal, that’s another way to help.
We’re aware of North Atlantic Books and will send them a proposal too, but we also would like to explore other possibilities. For instance, we don’t think ‘A Book 4CapoeiraThoughts’ (a temporary title) should be lying in the bookstores’ sports section. We believe this book has potential to educate people and institutions involved with social development about the ‘Social Capoeira’ movement that is going on world over, and the art-form’s potentials to be applied in a multitude of community development programs.
I know from readers’ feedback and the increasing readership that the blog has been helping people to assess their practice and their take on Capoeira. We believe it’s time to reach out for more people and share our passion for Capoeira as an emancipatory and empowering practice. We would love to hear from you.
Obrigado e Axé!
