Guided by intersectoriality and transdisciplinary, artistic and cultural interventions were performed to promote the discussion and reflection about human rights with people who have their rights often violated. The critical analysis of the proposal was obtained by the use of the technique of construction of field diaries, which were employed to the extraction of clippings for the construction of this text.
