The cultural-educational action, which took place on December 13, was conceived and carried out by the producer and public servant, Penitentiary Agent Vinicius Rosa Brixi, with the support of Gesau - Health and Social Education Management of the Penitentiary of Florianópolis and Sesc Florianópolis Prainha.

"The event made us reflect and realize that we are more human and give thanks for the life we ​​have, for our freedom. And for those who have lived there for years, may they have the necessary peace, accept and believe that we are beings that can make mistakes, but that we can transform our interior. We observed that for some there was hope, it was seen in the eyes, in the expression of the face". - tell to Lêda Mônica, member of the Quinteto Contadores de contos epoes de Natal of the Santa Catarina Association of Short Story Writers and Poets / Sesc Florianópolis Prainha.

"In the teachers' room, it was noticed that the students, most of them young, were happy, they asked for more poetry and that we came back more often to visit them, taking more poems to read. What surprised and moved us is that they started to sing song 'It is necessary to know how to live' accompanying our musical sound and rhythm. The teachers received us very well and we realized that they were happy with our visit. There was a lot of respect and affection between those involved in this rewarding and exciting work that enriched us, made us reflect on what it is like to live in prison, made us more human and we will certainly not be the same anymore" - concludes Leda.
