The heritage spaces and religious traditions of the Algarve set the tone for this gathering “Teia D'Ideias”, promoted by the Teia D'Impulsos Association and integrated in the 2018 edition of DiVaM – Dynamization and Valorization of Monuments.
The get-together opens with a challenge: to think about the Religious Heritage of the Algarve with an eye to the future.
Six guests will be giving body to the debate: Rui Parreira, archaeologist and director of Cultural Goods Services of the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve, Antónia Fialho Conde, professor at the Department of History at the University of Évora and integrated researcher at CIDEHUS – Interdisciplinary Center of History, Cultures and Societies, which was part of the project “Religious memories and heritage action in the Mediterranean. Confessional coexistence and patrimonial affirmation”, Susana Paté Gomes, responsible for the Conservation and Restoration Service of the Municipal Museum of Faro, Father Miguel Neto, director of the Pastoral do Turismo of the Diocese of Algarve and founder of ArtGilão – Religious and Touristic Activities of Tavira, Andreia Pintassilgo, communication designer and author of the master's thesis “How to communicate a religious manifestation in the XNUMXst century : the case of Mãe Soberana in Loulé", and also Susana Martins de Sousa, delegate of the Associação Espaço Jacobeus in the Algarve and master in tourism marketing, with the thesis "Memories of Santiago: from Heritage to the Itineraries of Pilgrims".
There are six specialists with different perspectives and approaches to the memory and religious heritage in the Algarve, who will reflect on its present state, the foreseen challenges and the perceived threats, always with an eye to the future.
What strategies to communicate this heritage? How to involve new technologies in their preservation and mediation? And religious tourism – should it be a bet for the Algarve? These and other questions will animate the debate, which will be moderated by Nuno Silva.
But the afternoon is not complete without a space for music. The choir group Adágio, directed by conductor António Alves Pereira, will offer those present with a repertoire of medieval and Renaissance music, which promises a journey back in time to the contemporary sounds and melodies of the early days of the chapel of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe.
The “Fé e Memória” initiative will end with a cocktail with tasting of regional products, provided by Mercearia Algarve.
As can be seen, there are many good reasons to spend the afternoon of Saturday, May 26, at the chapel of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe, with a new look at our past and our regional identity.
“Fé e Memória” is an action with the support of the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve and integrated in the European Year of Heritage 2018.
organized by Associação Teia D'Impulsos and integrated in the 2018 edition of DiVaM – Dynamization and Valorization of Monuments.
