SDG: 10. Reduced inequalities
Meio no Meio aims to promote training, the creation of learning opportunities and the active citizenship of young people and adults of varying levels of social vulnerability who live in the four municipalities encompassed by ARTEMREDE (Almada, Barreiro, Lisbon and Moita).
In the first stage of the project (2019-2020), two intergenerational groups attended training courses led by Victor Hugo Pontes (dance) and four local artists (theatre, cinema, visual arts and music). The second stage involves the creation and presentation of a multidisciplinary show, in 2021, that reflects the creation process, including testimonials from the participants. Meio no Meio thus aims at creating spaces for socialising and exchange between different generations and territories to bring worlds together.
«Meio no Meio»: Virtue lies in the middle ground
The project by Artemrede “Meio no Meio”, supported by the PARTIS initiative, has put hands to work to face quarantine, joined territories and generations, and proved that physical distance is not an obstacle to participatory art.
