WITH MAGDA HENRIQUES, MARÍA ACASO, NEY WENDELL
17, 24 and 31 January 2023 [Tuesdays]
7pm to 8:30pm
Cultural mediation has been the object of different initiatives and structures, through different services and practices involving heterogeneous aspects and manifestations. Reflecting on this notion becomes a promising exercise in the analysis of contemporary cultural issues. But after all, what is mediation? What do we measure, for whom and for what?
Seeking to broaden and discuss this concept, we opened the 3rd Cycle of Conferences on Cultural Mediation. The meetings will bring together participants and speakers through ZOOM and, over the course of three weeks, knowledge and experiences will be shared so that, together, we can reflect on different creative and cultural practices.
