Activity Algarve Bike Rides

Thanks to everyone who attended rides over the weekend, the weather was not always looking great, but we managed two good rides without any significant rain so hopefully this week will also be good.

Visual Art and Classical Music exhibition - TaviraIt is sometimes said that artists learn about themselves when creating art that inspires. This is what digital visual artist Vinicius (Vini) Almada believes he is discovering as he explores colour and ideas through digital projection. At the same time he is interpreting classical music within his visual art form.

Vini, 32, is a VJ, a Visual Jockey, who usually shares his creativity in the club SIROPE in Granada, Spain, where he works, although still a resident of Tavira.
The music that accompanies his visual imagery, in a new exhibition in Tavira, is very different to the normal club format. His dramatic and rich images accompany classical music.

Querença's Traditional market - Nov 30Querença's Traditional market is back on the 30th November, and it's the month of the Pomegranate! A gastronomic workshop is waiting for all interested in this fruit, among other activities: pocket book drawing with the Urban Sketchers association, "zumba" class and the typical presence of local products stands!
Fresh fruits and vegetables, traditional craft, sweets, bread, wine are just some of the things you can find there!

Protest against the redevelopment plan for OlhãoAs you may know, the Olhão Câmara has commissioned plans for a comprehensive redevelopment of the Baixa in Olhao. 

Much of the proposed redevelopment contradicts the principles in the wider Plano Diretor Municipal (PDM) for Olhão which is now open for public consultation and can be seen on the Câmara’s website under ‘Aberto período de audiência pública para revisão do PDM’.

Life Drawing sessions weekly, in OlhãoEach Thursday we focus all our attention on how to draw the human body. 

For courageous beginners and artists, new members are made very welcome at this weekly session at Casa Da Juventude in Olhão.
