Sketch Tour Portugal Reload 2021
Writers and Urban Sketchers joint together on a special journey through Portugal.
In 2017, twenty-four urban sketchers from various nationalities were invited to take a journey showing their talent and getting to know the country in their own way, from a different perspective.
In 2021, a new edition of the Sketch Tour was designed with a new challenge, combining drawing with writing, that is, inviting urban skecthers and Portuguese writers.
The sketchers from various countries such as Spain, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Sweden and Egypt were joined by eleven reference authors and writers of the Portuguese language, from different generations: Mia Couto, José Luís Peixoto, Dulce Maria Cardoso, Afonso Cruz, Gonçalo Cadilhe, Rui Cardoso Martins, Sérgio Godinho, Marcela Costa, Matilde Campilho, Joel Neto and Jacinto Lucas Pires. The foreign sketchers included Lapin, Stefano Faravelli, Ian Fennelly, Simo Capecchi, Nina Johansson and Reham Ali.
Be surprised by the words and drawings and be inspired for your next trip to Portugal.
