LAUNCH OF THE PROJECT “A MANIFESTAÇÃO DO SER “, SUPPORTED BY CIAC, HAPPENS ON OCTOBER 11TH
On 11th October, at 16h00, the launching session of the project A Manifestação do Ser – Arte e Saúde Mental [The Manifestation of Being – Art and Mental Health] will take place. Supported by the Directorate-General for the Arts – Ministry of Culture, as part of the Art and Mental Health Partnership Support Program, this project was developed by Studio Rudolfo Quintas, in co-production with ADEB – Association for the Support of Depressive and Bipolar Patients, the Mono space and CIAC.
The Manifestation of Being is based on the vision that art can promote and improve the quality of mental health, acting as a force of balance between the inner and outer world. The goal is to create a digital art installation, in co-creation with people who are experiencing or have experienced depression, in order to allow the exteriorization of sensations, emotions and thoughts through a set of co-creative processes of artistic expression.
Developed through a creative workshop with participants associated with ADEB, in Lisbon, over 5 weeks,The Manifestation of Being will close with an exhibition at Mono space (Lisbon), in June 2022, together with a round table organized and moderated by Mirian Tavares, CIAC coordinator. The project is mentored by neuropsychologist Luís Oliveira and the development of creative processes is the responsibility of visual artist Rudolfo Quintas, in collaboration with musician Oma Nata, dancer and choreographer Hugo Marmelada and creative programmer Joan Sandoval.
In this launch session the project’s contents and program will be presented and discussed, with an estimated duration of 30 minutes for the presentation and 30 minutes for a conversation with the audience.
