Scale of the organization
Aims and activities of the organisation
Cupuaçu develops artistic residency projects, establishing the intersection of arts - performing, visual, music, dance, photography and audiovisual -, with ecology, agro-ecological practices as a reference point, including concepts, practice, ethics and pedagogies. Based in Portugal, Cupuaçu is linked to the “Rede Muda Outras Economias” (Change Other Economies Network), that is to say, a network of cultural, social, socio- environmental and educational actions, originally from Brazil, which has been weaving bridges in Europe. The outputs and practices carried out by Muda can be seen on their YouTube channel (Muda Outras Economias) and on the website (www.muda-oe.com). Cupuaçu's aim is to participate in projects with objectives similar to the one it develops, strengthening partner actions and engaging itself in future project coordination, in order to reach a greater network of artists and communities benefited by the widening and consolidation of bridges in the European space.
