They are, in fact, more than “100 Memories of Castro Marim”, a collection of letters, photographs, postcards, documents, books and many other memorabilia that were left to the new Digital Archive of the city hall, contributing to the construction of a new look about Castro’s cultural and social identity. The “100 Memories” project was born at the end of 2019, with a challenge launched to the population to give these personal and / or family memories to the Municipality. Inspired by the need to preserve, treat and disseminate Castro Marim’s historical documentation, Castro Marim’s autarchy built a chronologically contextualized narrative, which allows not only a rescue of the past, but also the construction of a new meaning about it. In the digital archive you can search and consult the documentation held by the Municipality of Castro Marim. This documentation is part of the collection with an extensive documentary volume, so the database will be periodically loaded and updated. Thus, the community is appealed to continue to contribute to this estate, sending their memories, by loan or donation, via email email@example.com. In this dive into individual and fragmented memories, an audiovisual survey was also carried out on the intangible heritage of […]

The Order of Christ was created in 1319, by order of King D. Dinis, after the extinction, by Pope Clement V, of the Order of the Templars, one of the most famous Military Orders of Cavalry, founded in 1118, in the aftermath of the 1st Crusade. With a decisive role in the Reconquest period, in the military activity against the Moors and in the settlement of the territory, the Order of the Templars was also the owner of a vast patrimony that, by right, belonged to the Holy See, a fact that threatened the sovereignty of the king. With the pretext of defending the Algarve coast from attacks by pirates and Maghrebian pirates, D. Dinis manages to decree the creation of the new religious-military order. The 1st headquarters of the Order of Christ was then the Castro Marim Castle, with one of the most solid defensive systems in the entire Kingdom of the Algarve and located on the maritime border with Morocco and in the vicinity of the Islamic community of Granada. “Castro Marim, First Seat of the Order of Christ” is an exhibition approved under the Interreg Spain-Portugal Program 2014-2020, supported by the European Union, co-financed 75% by the […]

BLUE BOW CAMPAIGN April 1st to 30th Location: Lagos Municipality Org .: CPCJ – Commission for the Protection of Children and Youth of Lagos The Blue Ribbon Campaign started in 1989 in Virginia, USA, when a grandmother, Bonnie W. Finney, tied a blue ribbon to her car’s antenna as a way of alerting the curious who questioned her about the ills. treatments suffered by his granddaughter, who had already brutally killed his grandson. Why blue? Because, despite being a beautiful color, Bonnie Finney did not want to forget the beaten and bruised bodies of her two grandchildren. Blue would serve as a constant reminder of her struggle to protect children from abuse. This story, in addition to demonstrating how the concern of a single citizen had an effect on awakening the consciences of the general public, became universal, giving rise to a campaign for the Prevention of Child Abuse, to which the National Commission for Promotion of the Rights and Protection of Children and Youth (at national level) and the Commission for the Protection of Children and Youth in Lagos (at the local level) have come together, with the aim of raising awareness of the care and protection of children.

April 19 to July 17 patent | 10 am – 6 pm (Monday to Friday) Location: Lagos Cultural Center – Room 2 and 3 Free entry “Art-Space-Architecture Interdisciplinary Dialogue – The greatest potential for human freedom lies in self-determined restrictions” It was at the Art Academy of Düsseldorf (Germany), in 1970, that Ernst Föll studied and had the pleasure of having as a teacher the artist Joseph Beuys, considered one of the most influential German artists of the second half of the 20th century. It was also there that he met the Fluxus Art Movement, a libertarian movement characterized by a mixture of different arts, originally in the visual arts and later also in music and literature. This movement was very active in the 60s and 70s. However, it was considered anti-art, since at that time the Fluxus movement went against the very object of art. Ernst Föll witnessed this artistic manifestation, as his teacher and another group of artists had a thought beyond borders. It is with this thought and learning that Ernst learned to see Art in a broader way, without barriers and with a lot of ambition. In his artistic career, poetry, philosophy and architecture play a […]
