“MUSEUS DE BRINCAR” is an artistic project that aims to promote, disseminate and value the affective memories of the gesture of playing, with the CREATION OF AN EXHIBITION/INSTALLATION AND THE EDITION OF A BOOK. It is an artistic creation project that aims to combat loneliness and social isolation among the senior population in Setúbal, contributing to the improvement of self-esteem and valuing memories as part of an oral history that must be registed. We see the sénior population as transforming agents of a collective history and their memories as aggregators of identity. Because is urgent to preserve individual and collective memories, we will collect them and work on them artistically and scientifically.
