This is a research on violence according to youngsters’ perspective as well as on the strategies they find to handle their local context, located in Timon-MA, Brazil, an area of social vulnerability. Ethnographic practice was used for the production of meanings, by means of field mapping, establishing links and relations with groups of teenagers; those who had more contact were the informants of the research. This research took a month and aimed to investigate in both singular objective ways the reality of the environment in which the youngsters were and the circumstances that this context implied. For the analysis of the collected data, Michel de Certeau’s common or ordinary practices were adopted as a model; these practices are strategies or tactics that shape every life. Waiselfisz and Cerqueira., et al.’s statistical data on violence as well as Abramovay., et al.’s studies on the situation of vulnerability in the social context contributed to this analysis. By considering these practices as products from the socially imposed order, the youngsters revealed in the research a re-appropriation of everyday life through new of doing, opening space for a new art living in the contemporary work.
