TINY MICE IN THE CITY 
Tiny mice will delight the most curious people. Their skulls and jaws unveil their appetite for insects or seeds. But who ate whom? Owls, keep your eyes peeled! In this web of life, we’ll analyze the food pellets of birds of prey, pine cones and footprints and test our knowledge in a game-challenge. Are you ready?

MY/YOUR/OUR MUSEUM
The idea underpinning ??this workshop, based on Siza Vieira’s architecture, is to conceive Serralves Museum as if it were infinite space – i.e. to imagine a building that can always opens out to another room, window or corridor. I, you and our families will connect and share our inventions.

18 OCT (SUN) | 10:00-13:00 | WORKSHOP 
ONCE UPON A TIME ...THERE WAS A LICHEN  
In the world of stories, a lichen is almost magical. It isn’t an algae, or fungus, but at the same time it corresponds to both of these categories. Sometimes greener, sometimes more bluish, sometimes stronger and urban, sometimes more fragile and rural. With a magnifying glass in hand, we'll discover phycobionts and mycobionts, Flavoparmelias and Punctelias, and we’ll fall in love with these little sentinels of the Park.

LICHENS
Lichens result from the symbiosis between a fungus and an alga or cyanobacteria. They can assume different forms, colours and sizes, colonizing the most diverse habitats - such as logs, rocks, walls, or even the ground. During a stroll through Serralves Park, we’ll see the diversity of lichen species and the sites where they live and how they grow.

HERE MY BODY IS A PAINTING AND DRAWING
The goal of this workshop, inspired by the Helena Almeida exhibition, is to conceive the body as a container harbouring feelings and sensations that can spread to others.
We will form a community for sharing at all levels, drawing our shapes via projections and dressing them with brush strokes that can be transferred to others.
Here, my body, as a painting and drawing, can be yours too!
