The Sete Anos Sete Escolas project offers a programme of artistic workshops with young people attending Years 7 to 12 for active reflection based on the performances created under artistic project Sete Anos Sete Peças, led by Claúdia Dias.

The participating schools, in Almada and in Porto, are located in run-down urban areas and include socially vulnerable young people.
