Kinross Paracatu hosted a popular arts and cultural festival, “Integrar na Praça” in August attended by more than 1,500 city residents. The festival (Integrar at the square), included art workshops, games and various sports for both children and adults, while local artists performed throughout the day.
“Integrar na Praça” highlights initiatives of the Integrar Program. Created by Kinross in 2011, the program creates personal and professional development opportunities for the Paracatu community, with a focus on education, culture, generation of income and jobs, and environmental education.
This marked the second edition of the event in 2014.
