On Wednesday 9th October a group of 18 participants departed Melbourne for Rio de Janeiro to embark on the third in a series of ‘Deepend Journeys’. This ‘reconciliation journey’ is a merging of the Deepend journey concept with work taking place at RMIT and Global Reconciliation. The project includes a research agenda and is a collaborative endeavour between Bluestone Edge, RMIT University, Global Reconciliation, Richmond Football Club and IBISS.
IBISS is a well-established organisation that has been working in favela communities of Rio de Janeiro since 1989. Today, IBISS works in dozens of favela communities around the city.
