Goodbye, mARTians

By mART mART is ceasing activity as of today. Here are the founding editors' notes: Almost there It was almost a dream come true. An online cultural maga...

Cinema, music and books

I would recommend three things this weekend: the activities scheduled under the Macao Library Week, Tajima Hal's live concert at Live Music Association (LMA) and the Macao Films Panorama programme taking place at Cinemathèque Passion.
Arco Lisboa

ArcoLisboa features 50 galleries

The second edition of ARCO Lisboa will take place between May 18 to 21, at Cordoaria Nacional. It features 50 galleries, half of which come from outside Portugal.

Smaller is more

I understand the elderly situation and I do agree that some of the buildings, located in these historic neighbourhoods, must undergo some kind of renovation works. But is it really necessary to ask for the government to eliminate or change such height limits?
The Crown Jewels

MAAT opens three new exhibitions

Three new exhibitions are opening at Lisbon’s Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) on May 16: a large-scale project by Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa, a site-specific work by João Onofre and APQHome, an art installation by Ana Pérez-Quiroga.

One Book in One Day

The Portuguese publishing house Chiado Editora will organise the iniative Um Livro Num Dia (One Book in One Day, in English), to celebrate World Book Day, on April 23.

A new place for live music

There is a place in the city now welcoming regular music nights with local performers. Owner of Wonderwall Coffee tells mART there are already a couple of events scheduled, including a night dedicated to jazz, on April 30, another one for bossa nova, on May 20, and a blues live session on June 17.
Character Design Workshop

Character design for beginners

A character design workshop is to take place at the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, from May 10 to 12. The workshop will be in English, by Mhill Krasniqi, a professional graphic designer.
Macao Science Center

A perfect scenery

Macao Science Center is one of the few buildings done recently with a beautiful design that fits with the landscape and is of great added value for the community.
The Game of Finger Worms

Reading for the young

I'm not recommending a book, but almost a concept. Hervè Tullet's books are all equally challenging, fun and creative, for those who wish to do joint activities with children, while promoting reading habits at the same time.

Macau Jazz Sunday Sessions keep on

Every Sunday, there is a jazz session taking place at Live Music Association (LMA), promoted by Jazz Club de Macau. It started on April 2 and it is expected to keep on, considering it has been having full house.
