INTERATIVOS 2019 | Programme

(For more info & RSVP, please visit: www.meetup.com/INTERATIVOS/)

–       During this term we’ll focus on women artists, then we go on to colour and from August until the end of the year we’ll be welcoming special guest collaborators.

–       At Interativos we start the workshop talking about an artist/ artist movement & reading poems to engage on nice conversations and to get inspired to do the creative work. Please don’t expect a lecture! It’s all very informal and in a friendly environment.

–       We propose an activity, but we also like the idea of a free space, so feel free to work on your own ideas or to bring something you’re already working on.
