“It is never too late to be wise.”
Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe.

Did you know that it’s been 300 years since Daniel Defoe shipwrecked Robinson Crusoe, thereby plunging them both into literary immortality?

Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal is paying homage to the classic novel throughout September and October, and here’s what we’ve gathered from them:
“Curated by Rogério Miguel Puga (CETAPS, NOVA FCSH), this show presents the specifics of Portuguese translations and adaptations of Daniel Defoe’s realistic novel, as well as the various visual representations of the global hero throughout the times.
This year marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of the novel – April 25, 1719 – which quickly became a symbol in world popular culture, inspiring (intersemiotically) novels, plays, children’s works, operas, films, video games, among other art forms, being rewritten, revisited, transformed, and commented on by authors such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Robert Louis Stevenson, HG Wells, EM Forster, Virginia Gold, William Balling, and countless others that force the hero to migrate across various languages ​​and cultures, including Portugal, as this show reveals.”

The INATEL Foundation describes the fourth edition of their POPular – INATEL na Rua Festival as “an initiative that aims to disseminate traditional cultural practices, in fulfillment of its mission and as a UNESCO consultant to safeguard the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Portugal.”
They’ve been partying and safeguard culture since May, and for the last two weekends in September they’re throwing two final three-day celebrations — one in Ajuda and the other in Jardim da Estrela.
Theater, dance, music, ethnography, sports, games — and, in the words of INATEL, “vehicles of associative work performed by thousands of citizens dedicated to the valorization and dissemination of traditional culture” — are just some of the cultural fun ahead.

Alameda, the beautiful semi-park overlooking downtown Lisbon, is often overlooked due to its location. Local non-profit Street Fest describes itself as based on the “idea of ​​boosting the capital’s squares and gardens, creating unique moments of good music and a very good atmosphere for a happier city!”
This weekend, they’re boosting the already unique area of Alameda with two days of good vibes.
Here’s how they describe it:
“Bring family and friends, dog and parakeet, a towel to spread on the lawn, and taste the different flavors in STREET FOOD roulette, to the sound of Ketzal, Azza, The Cool and Caffeine, and Lucky Club! Accompany this with a cold imperial and say goodbye to the summer in a perfect environment between food, music, and a small exhibition of craft projects of young entrepreneurs.”

Imperial = draft beer FYI.

Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.

Bi-weekly | MARKET | Antiques and Crafts | Belém | FREE @ Jardim Vasco da Gama in Belem | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This Belem market takes place on the first and third Sunday every month, and is a better-organized and smaller version of the chaotic Feira da Ladra. It’s definitely more middle class, is what we’re saying. There’s an abundance of antiques, used books, watches, and cameras, ceramics old and new, and even furniture, and smart hagglers will find that there are bargains to be had. The market is also particularly good for more creative souvenir shopping these days and, at last count, there were at least two very skilled shoemakers willing to part with their quality-leather creations for not very many euros at all. And on the first Sunday of every month, you can also visit the nearby CCB Market, which is, how shall we put it… more upper-middle-class?

Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal is paying homage to the classic novel throughout September and October, and here’s what we’ve gathered from them:
“Curated by Rogério Miguel Puga (CETAPS, NOVA FCSH), this show presents the specifics of Portuguese translations and adaptations of Daniel Defoe’s realistic novel, as well as the various visual representations of the global hero throughout the times.
This year marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of the novel – April 25, 1719 – which quickly became a symbol in world popular culture, inspiring (intersemiotically) novels, plays, children’s works, operas, films, video games, among other art forms, being rewritten, revisited, transformed, and commented on by authors such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Robert Louis Stevenson, HG Wells, EM Forster, Virginia Gold, William Balling, and countless others that force the hero to migrate across various languages ​​and cultures, including Portugal, as this show reveals.”

FREE ENTRY.

Wil-son!!!

Oct 20 @ 09:00 – 17:30
Bi-weekly | MARKET | Antiques and Crafts | Belém | FREE @ Jardim Vasco da Gama in Belem | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This Belem market takes place on the first and third Sunday every month, and is a better-organized and smaller version of the chaotic Feira da Ladra. It’s definitely more middle class, is what we’re saying. There’s an abundance of antiques, used books, watches, and cameras, ceramics old and new, and even furniture, and smart hagglers will find that there are bargains to be had. The market is also particularly good for more creative souvenir shopping these days and, at last count, there were at least two very skilled shoemakers willing to part with their quality-leather creations for not very many euros at all. And on the first Sunday of every month, you can also visit the nearby CCB Market, which is, how shall we put it… more upper-middle-class?

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.
