From the 3rd to 7th September 2004 under the open star sky of the Serra da Capivara National Park in the caatinga of Piauí in the northeast of Brazil inside a profound pre-historical scenery, the 2nd Interarts Festival Interartes has showed cultural traditions side by side with innovative arts.

The stage is placed in front of Pedra Furada (Pierced Rock), one of the landscape symbols of the par. Here artists from diverse regions of the world present regional and classic music, dance and mime.

The festival, that is located in one of the economically poorest regions of the country, presents art from the ancestry to the contemporary expression, from the roots to uptodate. The program will also include conferences for art and science.

The pupils of the social project Pro-Arte that is supported by the Foundation of the Museum of American Man (FUMDHAM) also present themselves, promoting art in education to the children and young people of the region. It makes the 2nd Interarts Festival Interartes an unique event in the world as it has these characteristics, involving social context and scientific knowledge and all types of arts.

The first Interarts Festival Interartes had about seven thousand visitors. It was nominated for the national award „Estadão Multicultural“.
