"ONE AMONG MANY"
The theme of Serralves em Festa’s 2015 edition reinforces one of the event’s main distinctive characteristics – the fact that it proposes a genuine collective existence over 2 days, in which the general public and artists share places and remarkable experiences, such as visiting the museum at 2 a.m. in the morning, or dancing in Serralves meadow at dawn. The programme includes proposals that illustrate the interaction between the visual arts and performing arts, including Performance Art, Music, Contemporary Dance, Theatre and Cinema, Architecture and Ecology, which are presented in a close and integrated relationship with the ongoing activities in Serralves Museum and Park.
This year’s edition of Serralves em Festa will focus on the relationship between the event’s audiences and Porto’s different artistic agents – ranging from cultural associations to art schools, thus providing unique encounters and perspectives of further collaborations. There will once again be emphasis on partnerships with Portuguese artistic, cultural and environmental institutions, thus making the Serralves Foundation the largest meeting point for everyone who thinks about and programmes performing arts activities in Portugal.

THE FESTA CONTINUES OUTSIDE SERRALVES!
As in previous years, Serralves em Festa welcomes the participation of the local and national community, and also artists from around the world - establishing partnerships with other cultural, social, educational and artistic entities of Porto and Portugal. The Festa once again continues beyond the doors of Serralves and presents projects in the city of Porto, in partnership with Porto Municipal Council, through PortoLazer. 
This extension to Porto’s Baixa zone and the intersection with the council’s strategy for hosting entertainment events in the city’s public spaces, constitutes the high point of the partnership between Serralves and Porto Municipal Council, via PortoLazer, in the framework of Serralves em Festa. 
Serralves em Festa aims to forge an increasingly close connection with content provided by the city's artists, territory and local citizens in general. These aspects are strengthened in the 2015 programme, in which Serralves em Festa once again occupies a prominent place within the agenda of the city’s anchor event - the Festa of São João of Porto - which this year lasts for seven weeks - from May 23 to July 4.

Prepared for another SERRALVES EM FESTA?

In 2014, the 11th edition of "Serralves em Festa 2014" had 140,724 visitors and benefited from a large number of volunteers. The activities included over 250 events for audiences of all ages and generations. Serralves em Festa is already the biggest contemporary artistic festival in Portugal and one of the largest in Europe.
This unique moment of attraction and diversification of visitors, which constitutes an unparalleled form of promoting Serralves, the city of Porto and Portugal as a whole, has been made possible through the contribution of all the volunteers: who take part in receiving the general public, the exhibitions, the Festa’s fair, and support during the various activities that take place over the 40-hour non-stop event.

"It was a terrific experience in terms of contact with culture and its protagonists, something that would be unthinkable without this voluntary service. We feel that we’re genuinely useful in providing this service to the Foundation and to the general community because the Festa belongs to everyone. " (Testimony of a Volunteer in Serralves em Festa)

FERAL CHOIR: PHIL MINTON IN PORTO 
Registration to participate in the vocal workshops to be held in the AXA Building

Would you like to join a choir project, but don’t think you know how to sing?
Have you been waiting for the opportunity to explore all the possibilities of your voice through improvisation exercises?

Serralves, in association with the Porto Municipal Council, via Porto Lazer, hereby invites you to join a very special choir project: the Feral Choir of the British musician Phil Minton, one of the world’s greatest experts of vocal improvisation and experimentation.
The Feral Choir project, which began in the 1980s, is a series of vocal workshops aimed at non-professionals, which culminate in live performances. The workshops have been held in many places at different latitudes - from Europe to Australia, from Brazil to Japan, from the USA to Russia.
In Porto, the workshops will take place at the Axa Building, in the Avenida dos Aliados, and the performances will be held in Porto’s Baixa neighbourhood and the Serralves Foundation, in the framework of the programme of the 2015 edition of Serralves em Festa.
The initiative is aimed not only at singers but anyone who enjoys the freedom to experiment and the pleasure of joint discovery of the possibilities of the human voice. Participants are encouraged to share an activity and learn with Phil Minton, based on the conviction that anyone who breathes can produce sounds that may provide a positive aesthetic contribution to the human condition.
Feral Choir - Porto will have its genesis and first public performances in the context of Serralves em Festa, but has the potential to continue beyond, with many further adventures.

Workshops: May 27 and 28, from 18:00 to 22:00
Rehearsal: May 29 at 18:30
Public performances: May 29 at 21:30 and May 30/31
Registration: 5 euros (minimum age - 8 years)
Maximum number of participants: 40 (the selection is made by order of registration)

The workshop will be given in English.
Revenues from the registration fees will revert to the charity association - Qualificar para Incluir.
