From 17 to 27 novembre started a new project in Azevedo (in the suburbs of Porto, Portugal), focused on collective creation and community participation, PELE has been finding new ways to approach the community, by portraying the local people.

Within the socially excluded context where this project takes place, the “Portraits of Azevedo” activity proposed an empathic approach, focused on the “act of exchange” as a way to create dialogue.
After being portrayed, each person would exchange the drawing for some sort of information, which could go from sharing personal food habits up to some relevant aspects of the actual situation they live in.
