Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa

Living and thinking culture at Culturgest

23 November was the day chosen for Culturgest to open the doors once more in 2022 to higher and vocational education students. Student Day is a set of initiatives with free admission, where teachers can also participate as accompanying persons. From theatre to music, exhibitions, debates, public lectures, conferences or guided tours, the initiative aims to make students live and think culture.

The presence of Visionaries, one of the four central exhibitions of Terra, was the pretext for a public lecture on the specifics of architectural exhibitions. Manuel Henriques, executive director of the Triennale, Bruno Marchand and Mário Valente, respectively Visual Arts programmer and coordinator at Culturgest, addressed models of cooperation, articulation of disciplines, or solutions for the impossibility of bringing the object to the exhibition space – buildings, in this case.

Student Day also featured a series of guided tours to Visionaries led by Bruno Marques. And outside the event's official programme, Terra's curatorial duo, Cristina Veríssimo and Diogo Burnay, conducted another Visionaries guided tour, tailor-made for a group of students from the University of Nantes, France.

The programme included in the afternoon a public lecture on educational mediation, delivered by Raquel Ribeiro dos Santos and Filipa Tomaz, respectively coordinators of Culturgest and Triennale’s educational services. Throughout the day, other issues were addressed, like the production of cultural events, European projects, the CGD collection or the organisation of corporate events, and visitors could also enjoy an art book market. For the Triennale, it was a great pleasure to take part in this event organised by Culturgest.
