Following the discovery of a mysterious object from the Roman period, Francisco Tropa proposes a dialogue between past and present, contemporary sculpture and archaeology.
The commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Calouste Gulbenkian offers an opportunity to reflect on the philanthropy and the positioning of the Foundation (created 63 years ago) in a period of constant change. In this context, principal philanthropic organisations in Europe and the United States have been invited to Lisbon in order to discuss the latest trends in the world of philanthropy. Participants will address subjects such as developing a holistic vision of social problems on both local and global scales, the paradigm shift in charity – from helping the needy to investing in communities – to improve social equity, questions of managing partnerships and impact assessment, among other issues.
