This Sunday, April 2nd, Associação Cultural Luso-Grega - Parafonia is organizing the "Tiny Waves" creative workshop developed by EFATA Ateliers Nomades and held from 16:00 to 18:00 at the National Pantheon. The event begins with a visit to the exhibition "Thalassa! Thalassa!", based on the poems of the famous poet Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen (1919-2004), inspired by her travels to the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea.
The coordinators will invite participants to capture the flow of words, colors and emotions that will emerge during the visit, to write down the words, lines, shapes, textures, sensations and emotions felt, and eventually recreate their own narratives or stories woven around "Thalassa! Thalassa!" between words and images. The workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the watercolor technique.
At 18:30 the film "Correspondências" will be shown in the Panteão, based on the exchange of correspondence between Sophia de Mello Breyner and the writer Jorge de Sena, with English subtitles. Event participants are welcome to attend.
EFATA Ateliers Nomades is a platform with the mission to establish exchanges around the arts and their technical, creative, cultural, historical and expressive dimensions. The platform typically develops and implements tailor-made educational projects, cultural mediation plans, curatorial services, as well as workshops and meetings around artistic practices, exhibitions or places that we look at through the prism of art, its history, its multidimensional implications, and challenges.
At the "Thalassa! Thalassa!" exhibition, the sea and the Mediterranean bring works from the Caixa Geral de Depósitos Collection into dialogue with the words of the writer. A game of mirrors between the works of names like Júlio Pomar, Menez, Julião Sarmento, João Hogan, Paulo Nozolino, José M. Rodrigues or António Ole and about 25 poems, presented here in a Greek translation.
