ABOUT

The Rota do Sol is a cultural route that travels through six municipalities in the upper hinterland of Paraíba with the objective of recognizing and valuing popular traditions and the identity of the Northeastern people, as a territorial development strategy.

The event is great in many ways: in terms of its impacts on culture, education and the development of the region through tourism and the appreciation of the popular traditions of the upper backlands of Paraíba, as well as the empowerment and strengthening of local culture, encouraging artistic production, entrepreneurship, enrichment in the production of knowledge and in the visibility that all this gives to Sertão. 
 

The program includes, diversifies and creates new learning possibilities. This is reflected in the recognition and appreciation of the experiences of a people, giving new meaning to the look at the interior of the northeastern hinterland and its creative potential, in order to understand that culture can be considered the starting point for the development of this creative territory.


Rota do Sol broke the paradigms of devaluation of the knowledge and doings of the Northeast, of the suffering sertanejo, who is inhibited from portraying their reality. Showing  what we have best, inspiring international artists and from north to south of the country, contributing to the cultural effervescence of the territory.
