The MetaReciclagem project aims to recycle computers in order to equip them with open source software and deliver them to community centers. They are involved with more than 100 cultural points that are being developed by the Ministry of Culture. As a decentralized network, MetaReciclagem works with various communities throughout Brazil, in addition to what they call “spores” (metarecycling centers) and conecTAZes (projects that benefit from reappropriated technology).
MetaReciclagem has received a mention of honour at the Prix Ars Electronica festival (Linz, Austria, 2006) and at APC Betinho Prize (Montevideo, Uruguay, 2005) and a research grant in 2004, as part of the platform Waag / Sarai.
