The European Landscape Week

"A landscape waiting for our attention..."

21st - 27th of April 2014 ASTA - Associação Sócio Terapêutica de Almeida Cabreira do Côa, Almeida - Portugal

In 2014 the European landscape week will take place in a small village in north-east Portugal - Cabreira do Côa, in the municipality of Almeida. The week will be hosted by ASTA - the socio-therapeutic association of Almeida.
During the week, the surrounding rocky landscape with its hills, shrubs, the village Cabreira and the river Côa will be the focus of our attention and care. Through observation and artistic exercises we will connect to the landscape and develop guiding motifs for its future development, working together in small thematic workshops.
The landscape week ends with a presentation of the results to the public, open lectures and a festive evening on Saturday the 26th. A book with the methodology and main results will be published in the aftermath of the landscape week.
