INTERATIVOS 2018 | Aug – Dec

1 Jul

INTERATIVOS 2018 | Programme August to December

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

–       During this semester we’ll focus on women artists, often making a parallel with Latin America.

–       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.

“Troca-Troca” exhibition & party on Friday 16th Dec 

1 Dec

After an amazing Sunday exchanging ideas, books and making new art and friends, the next stop is… Troca-Troca exhibition, on Friday 16th of  Dec, from 5pm-until late, at The Stash Gallery at Vout-o-Reenees.

And again you’re very welcome to join us!

This exhibition is the result of a rich and inspiring exchange with fellow artist and poet Alice Hsieh.

We have met during a book club in early 2015 and since then we have been exchanging ideas about poetry and art, and giving each other feedback.

During this period, Alice wrote a series of poems, published in a bilingual (English-Portuguese) format, which have been developed into video and Spoken Word performances, while I have been working on a series of texts and interactive art installations, some of them already known to some of you.

We look forward to having you with us to celebrate our passion for books, words and poetry!

5pm – 8pm Preview & book launch
8pm Performance. Voice & berimbau duet: Alice Hsieh with capoeira master Pequeno Mestre
8pm – until late Party

a special thank you to all INTERATIVOS participants!

27 Nov

Thanks to everyone who joined INTERATIVOS creative workshop and exchange and to The Create Place at St Margaret’s House for hosting us. I had a blast!
Interesting chats, new friends and collaborations. What a pleasant time with lovely people, nice snacks and lots of cups of tea. Below, a few shots of the day and some of our creations.

If you want to come back or if you missed it, add the new dates to your diary: in 2017 we’ll be at The Create Place (29 Old Ford Road E2) every first Saturday of the month, from 11:00-15:00, starting on the 7th of January.

Hoping to see you there for the next INTERATIVOS and another inspiring day!

Join me @ Hack the Barbican this August

30 Jul


Join me at the Barbican during the artist residency I’m doing there on August, part of “Hack the Barbican”,  a month-long playground of arts, technology and entrepreneurship.

Check it out and spread the word: it’s FREE! Just pop in and join me.

“INTERATIVOS” artist residency @ Barbican’s Foyer/ Interaction Point (Ground floor)
Tuesd 6 until Sat 18 Aug (11am – 6pm)

Text & Art workshop @ Barbican’s Hammerson room
Sat 31 Aug (11am-6pm)

Visit me at the Barbican from the 6th-18th and let’s together create collaboratively during the Artist Residency I’m doing there this month.

Through the exploration of what’s on at the Barbican Centre, participants are invited to capture the invisible and create stories in unusual ways that will lead to artistic-visual works created collectively.

People from all ages and backgrounds are welcome to participate!

You can bring whatever you find inspiring (a poem, a quote, a book, etc.) to share with everyone and I promise to also show you some interesting stuff!

The aim of the project is to encourage experimentation: different ways of storytelling, unusual ways of showing the writings trough arts.

After two weeks, the expected result is the liberation from established concepts of what storytelling, writing and arts are and to produce a range of works, than it will close with a workshop.
