DO ARCO DA VELHA PROJECT IN THE MINDEACT FESTIVAL
The project “Do Arco da Velha” has been invited to participate in Mindelact Festival in S.Vicente- Cabo Verde to be worked out with the local community. This project is represented by two organizations: Synergia (by the department “Conto o que se Conta” and by Popolomondo. To achieve this it has been made an investigation about the Portuguese and African cultures and traditions, trying to find out things in common and the own identity of each of these places.
The aim is to spred out this investigation and share it with the local community by artistic stay (dance, music, telling stories, handcraft and sharing traditions). This investigation is very important because it helps in the understanding of the portuguese influence in other countries and the transmission of the identity of each one, praizing the dignity and respecting its own culture.
This project is only possible because of the work of a team of volunteers either in Portugal or in Cabo Verde. It is based on the faith on the difference and the sharing to get a common enrichement. The expenses have been over each volunteer member. However there are other expenses that cannot be in charge of the team.
To continue with this project we need some help. we are not only going to take but also bring and share in Portugal.
