Identidades – Movimento Intercultural”

IDENTIDADES is a movement initiated in 1996. It is implemented in partnership with institutions operating in former Portuguese colonies. It includes current and former students and lecturers at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto (FBAUP), the GESTO Cultural Association and other institutions, groups and artists who actively identify with its goals. The movement has experience that gives meaning and support to its activities, establishing a framework for continuous relations with various entities in Mozambique, northeastern Brazil and Cape Verde, which has an impact on direct communication with people and their culture. Activities developed under this project have been diversified in the spirit of interdisciplinarity and the promotion of artistic exchange.

“Critical Concrete”

Critical Concrete is an emerging educational and social initiative that stands out of the regular dynamics of real estate development. It promotes new mechanisms to rehabilitate affordable housing and improve public and cultural spaces shared by low-income communities. It advocates a fundamental right to adequate housing, that is often disregarded due to lack of public resources or political regulation. Critical Concrete offers another dynamic to architecture: instead of building for, we build with.
