azevedo

Azevedo is a regenerative artistic creation program that proposes to establish dialogue between the territory of Azevedo (Campanhã, Porto), resident communities (human and more-than-human) and national and international creators.

azevedo sparks processes of collective conception and communitarian participation, promoting the stimulation of common spaces through artistic intervention.

In this context it aims at developing 4 micro-stories: 
Satélite [Satellite], Centro Cultural Móvel [Mobile Cultural Center], Lugar-Comum [Common Place] and Parlamento Expandido [Expanded Parliament].

As part of a broader narrative, each of these micro-stories will be powered by dialogue between resident communities and invited creators, in a communal research that will foster the development of other forms of cultural identity.

#Satélite​

A program of artistic residencies that proposes the connection between creation and programming, communities, and public space. It aims at establishing an area of cultural display, self-representation, and communitarian participation.

The first residence matched Pele and Coletivo Suspeito [Collective Suspect], leading to the construction of 3 nomadic modules able to occupy and function in multiple centers - Workshop, Kitchen, Presentation -.

#Lugar-Comum

A space that is dedicated to creating synergies between residents and invited artists. It aims at inspiring alternative models of collective experience that will interact between Tension, Conflict, Sharing and Utopia. A place open to experimentation that contributes to affirming a common identity.

#Centro Cultural Móvel

Suggests a transgressive bordering and potentially stimulating practice of access to cultural participation. Inspires mobility routines by occupying the space of interdependence between artistic creation and programming.

This micro-story relies on two collaborative cores:

The Grupo de Estudo [Study Group] is a core action-reflection collective unit that develops proposals for locally based artistic creation. This will be installed inside the 400-bus line between Porto city center and Azevedo. The proposals will be monthly activated, on the 26th offering the line users poetic disruptions in their daily lives.

Lovers&Lollypops takes over the curatorship of a musical cycle, to be held on the 400-bus line. This cycle will enhance the connection between multiple communities of the city and will rehearse an experimental laboratory focusing on landscape.

#Parlamento Expandido

A space of collective creation that mingles languages, sectors, and communities.
It is assumed as a regenerative ecosystem of participation, discussion, conviviality, and action. It proposes to reflect on alternative models of production, networking, and training.
