Founded by Isabella Prata in 2006, Escola São Paulo is an institution that offers very special courses in the creative world, entrepreneurship and innovation. Prata is a Tate Modern member of International Acquisitions Committee in London, President of the Committee to Support the ‘Glass House Project”, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, among other great projects she’s worked between Brasil, Italy and USA. She is also bringing to Brasil for the first time works by legendary artists such as Basquiat, Steve McQueen, and Richard Prince.

Together with the school, there is the Instituto Escola São Paulo, a cultural inclusion project that provides scholarships for students and public school teachers, financial support for young artists, and promotes free cultural events creating a bridge between international guest speakers from curators to artists, teachers and students. It’s a one of a kind school in the heart of Brazil’s most innovative city, São Paulo.
