Stories of the Square

  • LOCATION: Largo do Rossio

Part of the great attraction of travel is the experience of gathering in a popular place and watch the life go by. Often, it is in a public square- and in Lisbon, that is where we will gather, recording the hustle and bustle of everyday life intertwined with the onlookers- including USk! This square is a crossroads of cultures and peoples. There are many stories on the square- people, shops, cafes, tourists, performers, historic architecture. We will capture it all through a series of exercises that help to identify the "story" of your picture and speak about how to set up the design of your image so that the story comes through. Our group will meet together and get the assignment, and then disperse. Your instructors will catch up with you all around the square for personalized, individual attention and then, we will all gather back for a group crit and great sharing!

Parte da atracção da experiência de viajar é observar o quotidiano nos locais mais comuns e populares como Largos ou Praças. É o desafio para o Rossio em Lisboa, em que propomos registar a azáfama da vida quotidiana entrelaçada com quem observa, incluindo USK! Este Largo é um cruzamento de culturas e gentes com muitas histórias que tentaremos captar através de uma série de exercícios que ajudarão a identificar a”narrativa” do desenho e a organizar a imagem de forma a evidenciá-la. O grupo reunir-se-á para estabelecer o exercício e os seus objectivos e depois dispersará. Os instrutores ir-se-ão cruzando com os elementos do grupo trocando ideias de forma individual e personalizada e, no final, reunir-nos-emos para uma partilha em comum.
