Within the context of the exhibiton Catarina Botelho, qualquer coisa de intermédio, the Municipal Galleries invite you for walk with Francisco Pinheiro through the Campo Grande park and the Telheiras neighbourhood. This afternoon walk takes us through the Campo Grande park (now called Jardim Mário Soares) and the Telheiras neighbourhood. Along the route, we will propose some simple activities involving observation and listening that aim to encourage reflection on the city and its public space. This walk calls for a place and a time, where surprise, chance and experimentation form part of a shared city experience.
