As some of you might know,
my hometown Guimarães, in Portugal,
Is going to be the European Capital of Culture in 2012.
And what does it mean ?
It means that the city is getting millions in funding
but strangely, none of the people I talked to, from Guimarães,
seem to know what is going to happen neither have been invited to participate
as an artist, curator, art gallery ...
But rest assured, some friends decided to
take matters into their own hands
and started a movement, based on mutual cooperation
taking back their city with their own project called Noc Noc.
By taking back, I mean they are opening the doors to their private homes, studios, galleries
for a hole day, where you can walk around the city
and simply knock on the doors that are marked in a map.
Sort of an Art Scavenger Hunt with performances, theater,
music, sculptures, paintings, wine, friends and
Lots of Love
here is my small contribution
(that already got the administrator of the group banned from Facebook for improper content)
Pedro, I owe you one !
