The second of six online events is already scheduled for 28th April, among Talks and WorldCafés, in which a lively debate is sought on different visions for the future of culture, with a view to enhancing the sector and the Algarve region itself.
In a partnership between AMAL, Faro2027, the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve and the University of Algarve, a series of debates on the importance of culture in the development of the territories is being promoted. The second Talk, dedicated to the theme "3 Steps for Cultural Governance", will take place next Wednesday, April 28th, at 10:30am, via streaming, and can be followed through Facebook of Faro2027 (Facebook@Faro2027).
How can cultural strategies revert value in terms of social, economic and environmental impacts? What is the importance of cooperation and concertation for the success of long-term impact strategies? How can evaluation and monitoring strategies contribute to transparency and trust and constant innovation? Which governance models are currently and in the future best suited for regional collaborations in the field of culture? How should governance structures support the progress, creativity and independence of cultural programming? These and other questions will be on the table in this second debate that the Algarve is promoting in the coming weeks, which will focus on a circular path between Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation for the creation of long-term impacts in the cultural area.
Moderated by Alexandra Gonçalves, Director of the School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism (ESGHT) of the University of Algarve, the guest speakers for this initiative are Cristina Farinha, Expert at the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission, Ruth Melville, Programme Manager at Impacts 08 Liverpool and Gijs de Vries, Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
The aim is that the participants' contributions can be integrated in the document "Cultura Algarve Horizonte 2030", which should be finished by the end of the summer and will serve to guide municipalities and regional entities, framing public policies, with a view to obtaining EU funding in the next Multi-annual Financial Framework (2021 - 2027).
After another period of confinement, the Association 289 in Faro reopens its exhibition space to let the public know about the event:
Guest artists: Ana Rostron, Angelo Gonçalves, Bertílio Martins, Bota Filipe, Bruno Grilo, Bruno Paixão, Christine Henry, Fernando Sampaio Amaro, gat.uno, Gustavo Jesus, João R. Ferreira, João Ferro Martins, José Jesus, Joana R. Sá, Jorge Mestre Simão, Leandro Marcos, Marta Pedroso, Miguel Cheta, Milita Doré, Patrícia Serrão, Paulo Serra, Pedro Cabral Santo, Régis Vincent, Samuel Silva, Susana de Medeiros, Tiago Batista, Vasco Marum Nascimento, Xana.
"The house of 289 welcomes us once again, in its contained space, being able to serve as a refuge, an escape, a rest. It will strengthen possibilities of happening. To return to the time when art houses are alive. Because it is the bodies that segregate the space. It is the bodies that define the sense of the spaces, that transform them into place. (...) What the house of 289 proposes (and all the artists who will temporarily inhabit it), is perhaps leaps into the unknown, exercises in experimenting with freedom, a 'stretching' of relational 'qualities'."
Susana de Medeiros
The entrance is free and the exhibition can be visited with a maximum limit of 10 people simultaneously inside the space and the mandatory use of masks. Disinfectant gel will be available at the entrance of the 289. Visitors should respect the safety distance of 2 meters between those who are not part of their group.
The “APOSTROPHE” exhibition will be open until 13 June 2021 and can be visited from Tuesday to Friday, from 15:00 to 19:00.
"Discover the New Bauhaus" is the challenge promoted by a set of regional partners, namely Associação Designers do Sul, Al Mouatamid Ibn Abbad Association, Europe Direct Algarve, CCDR Algarve, Sul Informação and Faro2027.
Believing in the potential of Algarvians and the Algarve, it is the goal of this group of partners to inform, inspire and clarify about this large European movement in the hope that the Algarve and its actors can actively participate in the construction of the New European Bauhaus.
Organized by the European Commission, this 1st European New Bauhaus conference offers two days full of information and inspiring examples.
On the first day you will be able to attend several lectures and round tables with themes such as "The New European Bauhaus ship: a journey into the future", which will feature Elisa Ferreira, European Commissioner in charge of Cohesion and Reforms.
On the second day, you can attend the panel debate "Transformative Ideas for the New European Bauhaus" with the participation of Nuno Jardim Nunes, President of the Interactive Technologies Institute (ITI) and National Director of the Carnegie Mellon International Partnership, who will present Sea Bauhaus. On this day, you can also learn all about the Bauhaus Awards!
The Faro2027 team was present at the ceremony held to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Faro Convention
The Algarve Intermunicipal Community (AMAL), The University of Algarve (UALG) and the Algarve Regional Tourism Board (RTA) will co-produce the application.The Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR), The Portuguese Institute of Sports and Youth (IPDJ) and the Regional Directorate for Culture have expressed their interest in collaborating.
A regional, concerted and inclusive application was the guiding principle behind the Official Session held to establish local and regional collaboration agreements as part of Faro's Bid for the European Capital of Culture 2027, which took place on the 25th November at Teatro das Figuras in Faro. It was at this session that collaboration agreements were signed between the Municipality of Faro and the University of Algarve, the Algarve Regional Tourism Board and the Algarve Intermunicipal Community, thus formalising these entities as co-producers of the application. In this session, Collaboration Letters were also signed by the IPDJ Algarve Regional Directorate, the Algarve’s Regional Directorate for Culture the and CCDR, therefore formalising their interest in participating in this process, which aims to develop the region.
The session was rounded off with a lovely photograph taken of the Algarve’s key regional leaders, embodying the long-sought-after idea that Faro’s Bid for European Capital of Culture encompass the entire region. A session widely attended by the region’s life forces.
