Origin

The “Instituto Memória e Vida” – IMV (The Memory and Life Institute – MLI ) is an educators group initiative which has understood the memory appreciation lack between young students, both public and private schools. The MLI was born to develop actions in the culture field, with the purpose to enrich the students curriculum , supporting their feeling of being part of, as well the cultural background and the citizenship expansion.

This movement began at Jussara city , within Paraná state for about 64 km far from Maringá. The first actions had a wide social acceptance and soon it became a region reference in the cultural performance sphere.
