Pedagogy of the streets: Porto, 1977

Circo de Ideias

The book «Pedagogy of the streets: Porto, 1977» by Elvira Leite was launched at Circo de Ideias with a conversation between Elvira Leite, Vitor Almeida and Susana Lourenço Marques. The book, published by Pierrot le Fou, presents texts by Pedro Bandeira, Elvira Leite, Susana Lourenço Marques, Lúcia Almeida Matos, Joana Nascimento, Sofia Vitorino

The publication revisits the experimental artistic project conceived by Elvira Leite together with the community of Largo de Pena Ventosa, in Bairro da Sé, one of Porto’s historic neighborhoods. The project unfolded from 1976 to 1977, after the local housing support program (SAAL), launched right after the Portuguese political revolution in 1974.
