Olá todos! The sun and the rain are dancing a very jealous dance but guess what? If you want to have a wicked and inspirational afternoon activity while waiting for nightime to chase the “luzes do natal” around the city, we have what you need this week end to feel the sweet vibes of our Beloved Lisboa. Dress warmly, take your best mood and come meet us on Sunday, to say hi, share a very special moment infused with Christmas magic, citylights and amazingly talented artists.
- PAINTJAM – CARACOL DA GRAÇA 2nd edition
Join us Sunday at 12:30 at Caracol Da Graça for a paintjam gathering graffiti writers and street artists who will perform and continue the project we started last October.
Our theme: Citylife / Citylights.
Not only will we be painting, exchanging, and gathering but we will also build a big Christmas tree TOGETHER with empty spray cans that we collected with artists whose preocupation is also to highlight waste and what we can do to reinvest and reuse objects that would otherwise be thrown. Indeed, this tree symbolises our involvement in making things evolve and a good material representation of it.
- BAIRRO ALTO MARKET
More info here
You are probably in the middle of Christmas errands and because we like to mix different vibes especially when it comes to original creations and neighborhoods of Lisbon, we advise you to go wander in the Bairro ALto Market and maybe you’ll find inspiring ideas to put under the Christmas tree.
- LAPIS DE PAPEL
More info here
A very local and cute initiative from the Casa da Cerca, a place known for being a place of interaction and creativity, for this weekend to share with your kids since they are offering a workshop to create pencils with leftovers of paper. We love the idea of giving a second life to things we would usually throw away or forget and we hope you are on the same page 🙂
- LANÇAMENTO – MIKE EL NITE INTER-MISSAO
More info here
Maybe you are also curious about the history of Hip Hop and portuguese artists, then the portuguese rapper Mike El Nite is launcing his new project mixing music and literature with a CD and a comics (collaborating with Miguel Peres) to guide you through his surrealistic experience as a rapper.
- MERCADO CASA DE PANDORA
The Casa de Pandora is a multicultural event coming from Sao Paulo, for the first time presented in Portugal which aims at showing the artwork of some artists and the theme is obviously Christmas. It would be for you a good occasion to try out new flavors in terms of food, drinks and arts.
And because we also think about how to keep you busy during the hectic Lisboete nights, here are two suggestions for you:
- CANDYLAND XMAS PARTY
For a Hip Hop party wrapped in Christmas vibes you can check out this event and make sure you spend some calories dancing all night before the big upcoming meals.
- RODA DE SAMBA
A second option is to try out your samba skills and get some good energy from Viva o Samba during a live session called “roda de samba”
And don’t forget our open tour on Saturday @ 15h @ Praça Luís Camões ! You can register here !
