Missions and objectives
We are Criaatividade Cósmica, a non-profit cultural association based in Sintra, Portugal. The cheif of the board is Patrícia Freire (Mhd Anthropology, Digital Visual Cultures, programmer and producer). Since 2015 we programme and produce the Aura Festival – an international festival on the art of light in Sintra, Portugal, in partnership with the Municipality of Sintra, General Directorate of Arts/Ministry of Culture, CulturSintra Foundation and Parques de Sintra, Monte da Lua, S.A. We believe that Aura’s artistic programming reflects a critical attitude towards the idea that there is no alternative to the patriarchal and anti-ecological culture permeated by capitalist society.
Aura Festival – light festival in Sintra, workshops, exhibitions, editorial creations.
