Symposium and Green Guide Release


In partnership with the Asia-Europe Foundation - ASEF, the publication "CREATIVE RESPONSES TO SUSTAINABILITY - PORTUGAL GREEN GUIDE 2019" was launched in a Symposium at Almeida Garrett Library. The Portuguese Green Guide identifies 16 cultural organizations and institutions that contribute to environmental and social change in Portugal. The occasion brought together researchers, artists and curators, who reflected and debated issues related to the themes of the Biennial.

The presence of the guest Tim Clark was supported by the United Kingdom Embassy in Lisbon.
