Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until April 3 and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

VISITING HOURS:

to Mar 31 | ONLINE MARKET | Ninho do Mocho | FREE | ONLINE

Here’s what Feira do Mocho says about itself:
“Mocho has an incredible vision, and it is with wide-open eyes that we want to boost local businesses and attract new audiences to urban spaces and gardens in the city with the creation of Feira do Mocho;
We want to demonstrate the importance and the need for good creativity, quality, and diversity, with each edition, with what is best done in national and international creative work; give opportunity to new international entrepreneurs who start their lives in the national territory; adopt sustainable practices in favor of the environment, society and well-being.”

And here’s what Mocho says about the apocalypse:
“At a time when we are not authorized to hold events, Mocho prepares an online storefront that will be launched very soon.
“O Ninho do Mocho” is preparing to welcome brands and help in their continued recognition of national creativity and online sales.
Stay tuned and if you want to join, you can send an email to [email protected], to receive data and conditions for joining.

CANCELLED - to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Mar 31 @ 18:00 – 19:30
WEEKLY to Jun 24 | DRAWING WORKSHOPS | Nude Model Workshops: Drawing Skin | Rato | 7-10€ @ Casa-Atelier Vieira da Silva | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?”
Banksy.

Cathy Douzil is an artist and teacher who was born in Paris and now lives in Lisbon.
Cathy likes to draw, and she’s not bad.
For that reason, she doesn’t mind teaching you.

Here’s what she says about her workshops:
“Throughout the year, session after session, we will try to solve the mystery of moving a three-dimensional figure to our sheet of paper, capturing the essentials of the human figure (dynamics, movement, and shadow). Sessions will be at two speeds: calm every Tuesday and fast every Wednesday.”

The workshops are open to anyone 15 years or older, with no experience necessary.

PRICING:
-7€ per session all month at two speeds;
-8€ per session all month at one speed;
-10€ per single session (paid in cash at the Museum reception before 18h).
*Alternatively, monthly payments can be made via bank transfer, at least 48 hours in advance; please ask for bank details upon registration.

MATERIALS:
The material is included (board, sheets, and pencil) but limited to the first 18 students enrolled.
You will be able to participate beyond this limit with your own material.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday (except holidays), 18h-19h30, until June 24th, 2020.

Registrations via email [email protected].

Did we mention there will be naked people?

PAUSED – Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka’s Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE
Mar 31 @ 19:30 – 23:00
PAUSED - Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.

ON HOLD | Monthly | FLEA MARKET | Art & Flea at Anjos70 | Anjos | FREE @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the market is on hold indefinitely.

Come get your inner hipster on at Lisbon’s self-described “most alternative” market, the first weekend of every month, brought to you by Anjos70. Art, crafts, vintage clothes sold by modern people, funky teas and healthy substances, army fatigues, photography, printing workshops, a bar with non-hipster-priced booze, coffee and snacks, and much more. It sure beats the generic tile shops that Rua Augusta and Graça are littered with.
The market has been growing for six years now; it has over 100 stalls, plus a live DJ. The goods and the people are mostly authentically Portuguese, but with English being spoken evenly.
Ask any local and they will say they’ve been pleasantly surprised.

The market takes place on the first weekend of every month except August and January, when they have special programming. The entry is free, and if you’d like to set up a table, you can do so starting at around 10€, via https://anjos70.org.

The market takes place on the first weekend of every month except August and January, when they have special programming. The entry is free, and if you’d like to set up a table, you can do so starting at around 10€, via https://anjos70.org.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

“All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?”
Banksy.

Cathy Douzil is an artist and teacher who was born in Paris and now lives in Lisbon.
Cathy likes to draw, and she’s not bad.
For that reason, she doesn’t mind teaching you.

Here’s what she says about her workshops:
“Throughout the year, session after session, we will try to solve the mystery of moving a three-dimensional figure to our sheet of paper, capturing the essentials of the human figure (dynamics, movement, and shadow). Sessions will be at two speeds: calm every Tuesday and fast every Wednesday.”

The workshops are open to anyone 15 years or older, with no experience necessary.

PRICING:
-7€ per session all month at two speeds;
-8€ per session all month at one speed;
-10€ per single session (paid in cash at the Museum reception before 18h).
*Alternatively, monthly payments can be made via bank transfer, at least 48 hours in advance; please ask for bank details upon registration.

MATERIALS:
The material is included (board, sheets, and pencil) but limited to the first 18 students enrolled.
You will be able to participate beyond this limit with your own material.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday (except holidays), 18h-19h30, until June 24th, 2020.

PAUSED – Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka’s Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE
Apr 14 @ 19:30 – 23:00
PAUSED - Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.

FREE ENTRY.
