Heritales partecipates at the European researcher Night - Portugal 2020

27th November 2020

The European Night of Researchers in Portugal 2020 counted with the participation of the Heritales project, with an intervention by the CIDEHUS-University of Évora researcher María Zozaya, who spoke on behalf of the entire team, and recognizing the support of the various institutions that made possible the final ceremony of the Heritales 2020 festival at the National Museum of Ethnology (Lisbon).
In this presentation, we explain the history and bases of Heritales, a project that seeks to give visibility to sustainable communities and allows to discover the world's heritage using narratives of an artistic and playful nature. It is based on photography, games, theater, performances or interactive media, and mainly on the seventh art. Heritales uses different media to share knowledge about cultural diversity, showing realities from different countries around the world, whose dissemination the Heritales festival has promoted since 2016 with its program.
