Topias Urbanas

Topias Urbanas is an opportunity to unexpectedly enter the different spaces of the urban district of Marvila. There will be three days of performances, walking tours, conversations, games and video projections, conceived by a group of artists, architects and social scientists who spent ten months in this place working closely with some of its inhabitants. Exchanging views, sharing concerns and different ways of seeing the world, they constructed a multifaceted tour through the memory and singularity of the streets, squares, allotments and neighbourhoods of this area, focusing in particular on the neighbourhoods of Marquês de Abrantes and Lóios.

Does the urban area of Marvila correspond to the ideas that we tend to form of it? How is this space lived in on a daily basis? How do its generations mix with one another? What is the present-day life of this place like, composed as it is of multiple layers from the past and various possible futures?
