Praia welcomes “Storia na Lugar”, analysis platform and documentation of urban dynamics in Cape Verde

  • Storia na Lugar is an online platform for collaboration among experts, academics, artists, activists, public authorities and communities

Santa Maria - 28 October - "Storia na Lugar" will be presented on 4 November by 5:30 pm, at the National library, Praia city, with the presentation of the first platform of the pilot, called “Finka Pé”, developed in the Lém-Ferreira neighborhood.

Storia na Lugar is an online platform for collaboration among experts, academics, artists, activists, public authorities and communities, which now appears, at the moment when is being debated globally a new urban agenda, its challenges and potential.

It was created by the architect Patrícia Anahory and by the photographer, filmmaker and web developer César Schofield Cardoso.

This project is experimental and multidisciplinary of analysis and documentation of dynamic construction of places in contemporary Cape Verde, through mapping and participatory film processes.

Faced with contexts increasingly marked by territorial segregation and socioeconomic disparities, it's necessary alternative approaches to a more equitable urban development, developing everyday practices of populations affected by exclusion, challenges, poverty or marginalization.

The project proposes a space for critical reflection and production of knowledge.
