Featured Presentation

"Shouldn't we all pay more attention to the space around us?"

In Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens from PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month Lisbon, Mario Rueda presents the importance of street artists within our local communities.

Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art", but people like Mario see the city in a very different light. Public spaces are taken over by advertisements and corporations, but the artists, performers, and musicians who share their creativity and seek to delight fellow citizens are treated like criminals.

Book a Street Artist is a platform which seeks to empower artists and give back the city to citizens. 

APPLAUD THIS!

@ VOL 20 ON MAR 28, 2015

"Cafetra is a portuguese record label based in Lisbon, founded in 2008 by a group of young people who felt the need to release their own music. Until today Feira launched several records that challenged the standards of music being made in Portugal. Os Passos em Volta's "Até Morrer"; Pega Monstro's "s/t" or Putas Bêbadas's "Jovem Excelso Happy" are only a small part of what Cafetra has to offer."

Fruta Feia

BY FRUTA FEIA
@ VOL 21 ON APR 15, 2016

A preferência dos grandes canais de distribuição por frutas e hortaliças perfeitas em termos de formato, cor e calibre é uma das causas para o actual desperdício alimentar, e resulta num desperdício médio de 30% do que é produzido pelos agricultores.
O projecto Fruta Feia tem como objectivo principal canalizar essa parte da produção fruto-hortícola até àquele consumidor que não julga a qualidade pela aparência, reduzindo tanto o desperdício como o gasto desnecessário dos recursos utilizados na sua produção.

Pessoa e Companhia

BY DAVID KONG
IN LISBON

"Ao entrar no Espaço Pessoa e Companhia, não está a visitar nem uma livraria, nem uma galeria de exposições, nem um café de bairro.
Está sobretudo a descobrir um pequeno refúgio do tamanho do mundo. Um lugar onde habitam a arte e a poesia, a música e a literatura, a ciência, a filosofia e a história."
