Viviane Menna

15 Oct 2020

Viviane Menna is a visual artist, teacher and media activist who has campaigned to denounce human rights and citizenship abuses in Brazil. In 2000 Vivi succumbed to her adventurous spirit and began to navigate the rivers and the oral narratives of the traditional populations of the Amazon, producing a series of watercolours and documentaries depicting the unique life and culture of its inhabitants who have been largely ignored by the media.

Her latest adventure has brought Vivi and her three daughters to Australia, where they are studying at Browns English Language School, before setting off to explore the outback and our indigenous culture. Vivi’s indomitable passion burns brightly as she shares her remarkable story.
