6th International Art and Community Meeting

Porto, Viseu and Lisboa

September 18th – October 3rd


In the edition in which we mark ten years of existence it can be said that it has never been so challenging to think and do together, to dialogue, to approach and to persist. The circumstances in which we live turn the exercise of building an encounter with the characteristics of MEXE into an intense daily task of trying out balances, fighting fatigue, questioning and consolidating principles, dissipating confusions, generating intimacy devices and imagining other configurations for doing and being.


Performances, conversations, workshops, creative laboratories, installations and cinema compose the cycle of activities where social realities speak for themselves. There are more than 100 participants, besides the researchers that integrate the International Meeting of Reflection on Community Art Practices, dos 32 groups from 6 countries that will occupy 20 spaces in 3 cities  with the support of 30 partner entities.
