Sobre o evento

Utopian Workshop: These Gardens Are Still Vibrant

“And it was a miracle, those gardens still in bloom in the season when the green of Nature rusts and begins to turn a deadly copper. The plants and flowers spoke to me of the persistent care taken by Portuguese gardeners so that they prosper in that red and fiery land.”

CASTRO, Ferreira de (1969) - History of the old mine, in “Os Fragmentos”, ed. Guimaraes and Ca: Lisbon.

It is based on this brief description by Ferreira de Castro of the verdant gardens that once characterized the English quarter, that Daniel Cardeira will invite the participants of the second Utopian Workshop to think about the present and future of the public garden at Mina de São Domingos._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Through pictorial expression, participants will be challenged to intervene on two previously intervened tissue surfaces. This collective painting will be guided by the artist and focuses on the possibility of seeing a lush garden with all the species of plants and flowers that we allow ourselves to imagine. 

This workshop will be open to anyone who wants to participate, regardless of age.
