One of the most emotive projects by Lisbon-based creative talent Melanie Alves comes to The Hood.

"Vozes da Avó" is a celebration of Amadora's senior female community. Under the sign, the Colo como Ativismo, we pay tribute to the guardians of the family as symbols of resilience and perseverance along the path of affections.

A visual and tactile experience of unknown stories to discover and travel the paths of others through fragments of personal memories.

The feeling of the visual and tactile experience of the art installation that will stay for a long time, like the smell of burnt toast of grandmother Maria José.

To remember and link the importance of wise women, not only as guardians of our history but also as symbols of resilience and perseverance.
