Atelier Letra&Música - planning the 22nd of May at CAPC

The 2nd day of the workshop will be held at: CAC - CAPC
Centro de Arte Contemporânea do Círculo de Artes Plásticas de Coimbra.
CAPC is an art association that promotes and produces body of work as a group since the 60s. It is now based at the gallery Centro de Arte Contemporânea, in Coimbra, Portugal. It was originally connected with the University of Coimbra, but is now independent.

The space:

It's located at the end of Sereia's park, in the center of Coimbra.

The sculpture seen at the back is from the artist Rui Chafes.

Ideally, depending on the weather conditions. the workshop will be held outside, under the trees, close to the gallery building.

The bookshop of the gallery space.

We were checking the visibility of a projection in the window, so that I could eventually make my initial presentation (concepts to help initiate the discussion), but it didn't work.

So the initial presentation will be projected inside, in the wall of the first room of the gallery.

Furniture for the workshop:

Light boxes/tables
