Sala Bernardo Sassetti

Age Restriction

Target audience: adults


Conversations on Saturday afternoons around the concept of sex and gender, the world divided in two, feminine and masculine, and what this means in every person’s life . We invited artists, researchers, thinkers, to bring their experience and knowledge to talk with the public, adults and children, in an informal surrounding. While we talk, we will have tea and biscuits. These conversations are for everyone and every age — while some talk, the others can have tea, play or read, right next to us in the foyer of the Sala Bernardo Sassetti. Tigre de Papel and It’s a Book bookstores join us and will bring a selection of books on these themes.

3 November, Saturday, 16h
Identidade e Género, para além do binómio M/F
In this conversation we intend to consider the influence of gender in the construction of identity, on the with and plasticity this concept has brought in terms of perception of the other and in terms of what is our own identity, to figure out and clarify the differences between concepts like sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation.
