Cova do Vapor Residents' Association
In the lands of Trafaria there is a village built and designed by the inhabitants themselves - Cova do Vapor. A former fishermen's beach, it became, from the second half of the 20th century, the holiday destination for the working-class districts of Lisbon. At the epicentre we find the Cova do Vapor Residents' Association, formed after the 25th April revolution. Mr Guilherme, his son Paulo and Maria Alice, active members of the association, will take the floor and tell us how a self-managed community was created and is maintained.
Tuesday 20th June at 7pm, come and listen live to the launch of the 11th episode of Tales from Trafaria with Guilherme, Paulo and Maria Alice at the headquarters of the Cova do Vapor Residents' Association - Av. António Martins Correia 88, 2825-897 - Cova do Vapor , Trafaria. (See location on map)
After the hearing, there will be a participatory reflection/conversation with the presence of the speakers and all those who wish to join in.
To listen: Also on the platforms Youtube; Spotify and Soundclaud of Olissipo Radio, and on the website of the Council of the Union of the Parishes of Caparica and Trafaria.
About the Tales of Trafaria:
From the meeting between the T-Factor project (Horizonte 2020) and the artist Marta Miranda, emerged the initiative "Contos da Trafaria", a podcast of 12 episodes about the cultural, associative and artistic movement of the Lands of Trafaria, Almada. The podcast is coordinated by Carla Fernandes, coordinator of the Performance & Cognition research group of ICNOVA. The podcast gives voice to personalities and institutions from Trafaria, allowing the preservation of the community's history told by itself and creating a digital repository of memories of emblematic people from Trafaria. The episodes are released at a weekly pace, on the usual platforms. Some episodes are marked by "premiere" events in the community, with a collective public hearing, followed by a conversation/debate.
