Health with Art amid the Pandemic Challenge | Session 11

January 29, 2021, 18h00 (GMT)

Online event


Eleventh session of the international series "Health with Art amid the Pandemic Challenge", co-organised between the Federal University of Southern Bahia (UFSB) and the Centre for Social Studies (CES) of the University of Coimbra, kicks off as a fortnightly roundtable, bringing together researchers, artists, activists, social leaders, among others engaged citizens.

These online meetings will unfold around a broad concept of well-being and good living, feeling and thinking about how the arts, in its multiple formats and applications, participate in the imagination and making of a more dignified world, where health is affirmed in all fields and dimensions that we call life, amid or beyond the pandemic.

The roundtable is thus open to all those who create, use, research or experience the arts, seeking the many expressions and creative actions promoted by individuals, collectives and communities, among people, cultures and places, bringing together countries and continents, sharing and learning.

Speakers:  Richard Santos, Vice-Dean of the UFSB Centre for Training in Arts and Communication, Chiara Pussetti, Auxiliary Researcher ICS-University of Lisbon. Projeto "EXCEL - The Pursuit of Excellence. Biotechnologies, enhancement and body capital in Portugal", funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (PTDC/SOC-ANT/30572/2017), Raquel Siqueira (UFSB, Brazil),  Susana de Noronha (CES-UC, Portugal)

Organisers: Raquel Siqueira - Federal University of Southern Bahia (Research Group: Collective Health, Southern Epistemologies and Interculturalities - UFSB) and Susana de Noronha - Centre for Social Studies (CES) of the University of Coimbra.
