With interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language
Ecotemporâneos is a reading group which meets in Lisbon’s green spaces. At each session, a guest is invited to present a book for discussion, including its relationship with the surrounding park. Some of the books will be printed in Braille, while others will be freely distributed and translated into Portuguese sign language, making the reading and dialogue accessible to all those present.
Looking ahead to a more ecological future (Lisbon will be European Green Capital in 2020), the contemporary arts biennial (BoCA) has launched, in partnership with EGEAC, a project promoting the use of the city’s green spaces through an inclusive reading community, with the aim of making them more accessible and more widely enjoyed. We’ll be asking: can reading become an act which reflects currents times and biodiversity and at the same time be a widely inclusive and artistic gesture?
