What is the Mediterranean Diet? The exhibition answers this question by showing its multiple dimensions: the concept of cultural space and ancient Mediterranean lifestyle, an intangible cultural heritage passed down from generation to generation and its social and religious aspects, sacred foods and their symbologies, the products of the sea and land that support a diet of excellence recognized by the WHO – World Health Organization. The central focus is the territory and the multiple heritage of Tavira, the testimonies of the presence of civilizations of Antiquity, the cultural landscapes and products of the Ria Formosa, the productions of the barrocal and the mountains, the festivities and cultural practices that underlie the choice of Tavira as a representative community of Portugal in the application of the Mediterranean Diet to Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity presented in March 2012 at UNESCO headquarters. Films produced under the transnational application are projected and a kitchen space is recreated for information and experimentation activities, learning how to prepare and prepare food and culinary traditions.
Long-term exhibition where we can see archaeological remains from interventions in various parts of the city, dated in the majority of the century. XII.

The increasingly devastating effect of the weather in the mountains is obvious. 15 years have passed and the Serra is not what it was. Some houses still stand, with or without inhabitants, others have been claimed by time, and others don’t look the same. What yesterday was alive and living, today is abandoned. As a complement to tours, visits will be accompanied by photographer Luís da Cruz but also by technicians and researchers in the region. We present this large format photography exhibition, a revival in the context of a displaced mountain-range that allows both the recent past and present to be revisited. By placing them side-by-side, images of the same houses and serenities, separated by 15 years, we witness how time has become increasingly devastating and reality can be more mutable in some regions than others. The silence that lingers does not disguise the force of Nature
This festival already has nine editions that took place between the years 2000 and 2019. They gave rise to a CD and four DVDs. He returns again this year for its 10th edition with Cineteatro Louletano to receive several tunes in competition, on a night that is expected of a lot of music, good mood and academic spirit. The Tuna Universitária Afonsina de Loulé is a tuna where the elements belonging are exclusively male, thus respecting the old tradition of student troubadour. This project started in mid-November 1999 with some ideas formed by members of TUNAAF – Tuna Académica Dom Afonso III. These ideas were finally implemented in a meeting carried out by five students: Carlos Viegas, Emiliano Silva, Hugo Lopes, João Rodrigues and Júlio Guerreiro. This meeting took place on December 1, 1999, when TUALLE was founded, in one of the most emblematic cafés in the city of Loulé, where the well-known poet Aleixo used to recite his poems, Café Calcinha. From this meeting was born the Great Council, the founding entity of Tuna.
CICATRIZ is an Algarvian alternative rock project, sung in Portuguese, which brings together in its formation a group of musicians already quite experienced in the alternative movement in Portugal. With members and former members of bands such as AN X TASY, SAM & THE BIG BROTHERS, PELINTRAS and IZMA, among others, this Algarve collective presents itself with an interventional rock attitude whose message is essentially translated into the relationship of being human with its surroundings, through a cry of revolt in the face of all the negativity that the world gives us.
LAC – Laboratório Actividades Criativas was obliged, due to the current circumstances, to close its spaces and suspend and postpone all the programming in progress. In the first phase, we were as if in a “suspended state”, then, like many other structures, we felt the need to take advantage of the experience of these times, above all of what positive things can bring us – another (or more) freedom of action associated with two great needs; one, to find other imaginative programming and production experiences in order to continue creating opportunities for creators, artists, cultural agents and technical teams involved in making the events happen, and on the other hand, to return the manifestos of support coming from part of the public that follows us, institutions and countless partnerships that we have built throughout our existence. In this context, we launched the collaborative challenge to about 35 artists who are part of the 18 individual and collective projects in artistic residency at LAC, with the aim of exploring other formats of an event that has been with us regularly for a long time: O LAC – Dia Aberto, an event that annually discloses to the general public and the city […]
