Passeio (the Portuguese word for walk) is a Platform for the study of art and urban culture. Our entry point are city streets – architecture, urbanism and decorative arts, urban art, everyday urban life, trade and crafts, sport and urban hobbies, entertainment and performing arts, outdoor advertising – their images, their stories and the technological connections that extend the layout of city streets and networks.
Focusing on the daily actions that take place on city streets, ranging from the accordionist’s dance step to the pose of the living statue and street-seller’s cry,
we want to recover the memories shared by pedestrians and residents: the memories of shopping stores, coffee-shops, the life stories of street artists and traders, the testimonies of ethnic and cultural minorities inhabiting the city.

The platform is one of the research projects of the Communication and Society Research Centre (CECS) that was designed within the strategic action framework for the years 2015-2020.
