Slow Mile has gone into hibernation. Paulo, Bodil and Melissa are dedicated to teaching and art practice and will probably do things together but not through Slow Mile any more. For now we’ll just let it sleep. Who knows?
London will probably be on our map soon.
Let us know if you’d like to join us!

Recently we were invited by our good friend José Manuel dos Santos, to offer a workshop on creativity. So off we went to the city of Porto to be a part of Mindshake, a week long program that articulated a series of events around the idea of how to deal with creativity and its’ tools. Our session was called “thinking with the hands”. We looked at slides with examples from well known scientists and artists and did practicle exercices. To contact the deeper layers underlying our thoughts and visualize them using our hands, was the challenge. Our participants were open and willing to play making up for the sessions’ success.
The Gulbenkian Museum is a haven for art and culture in Lisbon. Going there is a renewed pleasure every time. Not only is the collection worth looking at but also the space, that contains and surounds it, offers a quality that pervades everything in it.
O sábado estivemos no jardim Gulbenkian a dar uma aula de desenho a quem quisesse aparecer. Entre amigos e novos contactos fizemos exercícios aproveitando a natureza oferecida pelo jardim. Gostámos da experiência e vamos repetir.
No próximo sábado dia 3 de Abril vamos estar no Jardim Botânico junto à Faculdade de Ciências, às 11h. Quem quiser aparecer, vamos estar à entrada do jardim à hora marcada. Tragam um bloco de esboço e um lápis mole.
