Description: APCEP – Portuguese Association for Culture and Lifelong Learning invites all the people and organizations, stakeholders and cultural / educational agents of the Algarve region to participate actively in the Festival of Culture and Lifelong Education on the 7th And April 8, 2017, in Lagoa.
This festival, which has been called SABERES EM FESTA / Celebrating learning, will be a diversified moment for exhibitions, sharing, reflection, socializing and animation, focused on the promotion of culture and education for all, in all ages and in the most diverse society.
The festival is based on the assumption that there are several organizations and initiatives that, in a more or less conscious and explicit way, foster curiosity and the desire to know more and awaken the confidence to create or enjoy cultural works.
In fact, Culture and Education for all:
• is present in activities of a civic, socio-economic, artistic, environmental, sporting, recreational and other nature, including associations of immigrants and other resident aliens;
• It occurs more directly in institutions of cultural and educational promotion, such as libraries, museums, senior universities;
• Inspires projects linking schools and universities to the wider community.
In this context, the festival SABERES EM FESTA has as objectives, among others:
• giving visibility to the informal network of stakeholders engaged in Culture and Lifelong Learning;
• strengthen existing dynamics and stimulate the emergence of new initiatives;
• to lay the foundations of a Participatory Network of Culture and Learning in Algarve;
• encourage active dialogue with local and regional decision-making bodies.
