Workshops and Meetings

Efata, Ateliers nomades develops thematic creative workshops, focused on specific mediums but also open studios that allow transdisciplinary experiments.

Efata, Ateliers nomades organizes visits to exhibitions and artists’ studios, as well as conferences and gatherings with artists, art historians and guest curators.

Efata, Ateliers nomades programs informal exchanges around theories, exhibitions, artists, themes, works of art, history of art, or artistic ‘’moments’’ over a drink or a meal. The platform also organizes visits to emblematic locations that we look at through art, its history, and practices.

Unravelling Freedoms, November 19th, 2022, Cinema São Jorge


Unravelling Freedoms is a creative workshop developed by Efata, Ateliers Nomades for the Olhares do Mediterrâneo – Women’s Film Festival involving guest Arianna Bavuso from AB+AC Architects.


It revolves around inner struggles, especially in the parts of the world such as the middle east and Lebanon in particular, which are often overshadowed by broad collective challenges and harsh social realities. During the workshop, the participants were invited to reflect on invisible yet persistent boundaries that eventually determine our ways of thinking, feeling or being. They attempted to map out inner and/or self-imposed confines, often entangled with external pressures. Within this, light was shed on the role of our everyday (domestic) spaces and how their attributes can be an agent of control vs. tools for a new-found freedom. By naming these constraints, then pondering on words and their visual counterpart, the participants explored other perceptions of what limits our freedom, through the practice of art, and overcome them, eventually.

Tiny Waves


Tiny Waves é um workshop criativo desenvolvido por Efata, Ateliers Nomades no âmbito de Thalassa! Thalassa! uma exposição baseada em poemas da escritora portuguesa Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen (1919-2004), no Panteão Nacional em Lisboa.

Após uma breve introdução à técnica da aguarela, a Tiny Waves convidou os participantes a captar o fluxo de palavras, cores e emoções que surgiram durante a visita à exposição e a recriar eventualmente as suas próprias narrativas ou histórias tecidas em torno de Thalassa! Thalassa!


O atelier foi viabilizado pela Associação Cultural Luso-Grega “Parafonia” !
