IHC joins project Museus de Brincar

Mar 24, 2022 | News

The IHC is one of the partners of the artistic creation project Museus de Brincar [Playing Museums], which was approved by DGArtes – General Directorate of Arts in the framework of the financial support to creation and publishing projects.

The project aims to promote, disseminate, and enhance the affective memories of the simple gesture of playing and, through it, combat the loneliness and social isolation of the senior population in Setúbal, contributing to an improvement in self-esteem, assuming this population as protagonists of stories that urges to preserve, placing them as a transforming agent of collective history.

These memories, understood as aggregators of identity, will give rise to inter-generational meetings, an exhibition/installation, and the publication of a book. The project team includes artists Paula Moita and Eduardo Silva, anthropologist Vanessa Iglésias Amorim and IHC historian João Pedro Santos.

The project’s activities can be followed on its Facebook page.
