Uma Arte Irequietta

The Portuguese edition of A Restless Art will be published by the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian this week, with events in Porto (8 May) and Lisbon (9 May). The book has been translated with sensitivity and dedication by Isabel Lucena, who has brought her exceptional knowledge of participatory art in Portugal and the UK to the task. It includes six new short case studies of Portuguese projects, including Geração Soma, which is published on this website today. In addition to the events in Porto and Lisbon, I will also be talking about the book, and community art more widely, at Viseu and Tondela, as well as meeting more of the people who have made participatory art such a rich field in the past 15 years. The book itself will be available in electronic form as a free download from tomorrow.
