Artists Readings In School

Os artistas vão ler à escola (artists reading in school) is an annual staged reading program, guided by 3 young actresses, with very diverse backgrounds and experience, all with ties to Montemor, Helena Caldeira, Margarida Caldeira and Catarina Caetano. Throughout the year the readings take place in the classroom, in a context of proximity with the students and the teacher, in a total of 18 sessions.

Triangulations

Together with artist Renata Bueno and professor Paulo Calçada, Espaço do Tempo welcomes throughout the year in several different moments of a project in two different strands. One, with the presence of Renata Bueno during the rehearsals of the artists in residence, drawing and investigating the possibilities of dialogues with the school, and another, in which the artist, together with Paulo Calçada, in communication with the students of the Escola Secundária, proposes several experimental pedagogical approaches. At the end of the academic year there will be a time for sharing the work.

Support program for the Visual Arts course at Escola Secundária

O Espaço do Tempo maintains its support program for the county’s school community, getting involved, once again, with a CEF (Education and Training Course) class. This year we are proposing a course of lighting design, more advanced, and again directed by Tiago Coelho. During January and February students take their classes at the Carlista Philharmonic Society, long time partner of Espaço do Tempo, where we installed a blackbox equipped for per- formances, serving not only for the band’s regular rehearsals, but also for this course. This is a very appealing professional area with excellent employability in the Alentejo region.

The school is also out of school

Luís António Verney

A beautiful story that every day is written!

At Luís António Verney School, in Lisbon, all students dance from the 5th through the 11st grade, continuing the adventure of the Specialized Artistic Education course in Dance and Music

It all started 6 years ago, when the school, located in a disadvantaged neighbourhood in the eastern part of Lisbon, began the integrated learning of dance for young students, following the example of music. After a couple of years, this is a school that dances and offers this unique teaching opportunity at EB 2/3 level and now, as well, in the secondary grade! A story of dedication from a faculty who believed in a project that many thought utopian, but today is a reality.

O Espaço do Tempo has been a partner since the first hour, advising on the choice of (excellent) teachers, supporting the final year performance, welcoming classes in residence, etc.
