bauhaus of the sea sails
1ST FEBRUARY 2023 I HUB CRIATIVO DO BEATO //// 2ND FEBRUARY 2023 I CALOUSTE GULBENKIAN FOUNDATION
The two-day Bauhaus of the Seas Sails kick-off event will take place on 1st and 2nd of February in Lisbon, Portugal. It will be hosted by the Municipality of Lisbon and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the project’s local partners. The main goal of the event is to present the Bauhaus of the Seas Sails project among the consortium members and showcase both local and international projects related to its research themes and interests.
Day 1 will take place at Hub Criativo do Beato and will combine keynote addresses, an artistic performance, a seaweed-based lunch, the opening of an urban design exhibition and two consortium partner workshops. A showcase of research approaches to the seas will bring to Lisbon researchers from all over Portugal, who will present their work in areas such as architecture, biology, archaeology, energy transition and climate justice.
On Day 2, consortium partner representatives and guests will gather at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and explore the project’s “drops” – concrete activities and experiments that over the next three years will engage local communities on a sustainable, fair and appealing transition. Following two sessions of 15-minute presentations, which will follow the themes of “Connecting” and “Designing”, the members of this engaged audience will take part in four workshop sessions led by Bauhaus of the Seas Sails partner institutions.
