Building communities from cultural spaces

Friday, 27 March10h00 - 11h30Main Hall - Palacete dos Marqueses do Pombal Talk

Many arts and cultural centres are fostering a move toward a new category of cultural centre, centred on the notion of cultural third places. These are hybrid spaces that offer different social and functional dimensions by combining multiple spaces of knowledge and culture sharing and experimentation, while opening up to public participation and action. In this panel we aim to discuss in which extent these cultural centres play a role in community learning and development and how do they improve new forms of production and distribution of knowledge.
