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 re-opened with new hours and regulations. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on — just in case.

Safe Space Portugal is a non-profit educational project founded in 2017 by the National Program for Mental Health of the General Directorate of Health. that aims “to combat illiteracy about mental health.”

One way they do this is MENTAL 2020: two weekends of art, theater, cinema, music, and general education, and here’s how its organizers describe it:
“The platform chosen is culture in its broadest sense, and the arts in particular — extraordinary vehicles for combating stigma, shame, and lack of public and general information.

With a focus on programming, exhibition, and discussion, MENTAL has experienced in three years a great impact at the level of participants and audiences who have watched international film shows, M-Talks (public debates) on the topics covered, and corresponding feature films, plays theater, dance, music, and a literary edition with its own seal.

MENTAL has an interest of a single public health and the choice of safe environments and common spaces such as cinemas, auditoriums, and exhibition halls, invites the promotion, sharing of experiences, and the communication of ideas, while fighting stigma, prejudice, and isolation.”

The festival kicks off at Cinema São Jorge on September 30 for four days of film, discussions, and workshops; it then moves to Espaço Atmosfera M Lisboa (Oct 8) and Fábrica Do Braço De Prata (Oct 9) for some art and music.
