Encontro Estéticas das Periferias (Peripheral Aesthetic Meeting)


Valuing peripheral regions in the city as producers of art and knowledge and going beyond their social and political value are the goals of the Encontro Estéticas das Periferias, which reached its 6th edition in August 2016.

Lines of action

Promoted by Ação Educativa’s team, this attraction counts on the partnership with 40 cultural entities, among collectives, public and private institutions, as well as many artists, programmers, academics and cultural agents.

The collaborative effort has brought many changes to the meeting’s structure over these six years, which resulted in astounding numbers. There were altogether 400 artistic presentations, 140 debates in more than 150 cultural spaces and an estimated audience of 60 thousand people.
