Porta

Francisco Janes, Cecília Vieira de Freitas, Maurício Pestana Reis

On the islands of Porto Santo and Madeira, a group of artists, researchers and teachers meet with children and young people to explore teaching through art. Vivid visual fragments and musical drawings provide an encounter with Porta 33, an institution that has been active for 30 years in its native territory. From the daily life of the people who design the future of the Porto Santo School and work day by day in Funchal, we travel together for a fleeting moment through the basalt and Laurisilva landscapes. Like shadows, simple actions and traces reveal the true nature of Porta and its mission. First in the communication of natural ideas for self-knowledge: childhood and drawing. Then in the creation of a unique place where art and nature intersect for a new beginning and the same purpose: the vital project of a school for the future.

This session will be attended by school director Francisco Janes and the directors of PORTA33, Cecília Vieira de Freitas and Maurício Pestana Reis.

Attendance will be limited to the rules outlined by the Directorate-General of Health in force on 31 August
