How does it work?
Easy. Click here to send me an email to arrange the pick up. I bike and have a Metropass. I will come to you anywhere: house, coffee shop, subway or bus stop. In exchange I only ask for a story- it doesn’t need to be true.
Is it safe?
Please don’t worry YYZGRU Express won’t keep anything. Upon handing in the object(s) you will receive a tracking number to visually track the item(s) on this blog.
What can’t I send?
Money, medicines, perishable items or something really heavy.
When will the gifts be delivered?
Before delivery, they will be shown at the Universidade de São Paulo for the Hemispheric Institute Encuentro festival with images, sounds and (maybe) video of the process. Anyone receiving a gift will be contacted.
Is it only for São Paulo?
No! (well it was in the past but that really sucks, right?). You can send a poem, a song, or a sound to anyone in Brazil. I will gladly record and send them.
Why is it free?
Let’s use art for what it’s worth: a series of exchanges and meanings along the way. An item for a story.
Are there any size and weigh restrictions?
I’m only taking my uniform, so you can send anything that will fit in a suitcase (62 kilos).
