What sound resonates when we connect with a work of art? What scent does it evoke? What about its taste? And if we could touch it, what would its texture be like?

Every exhibition, like every work of art, is a journey into a world waiting to be discovered. The sense of unfamiliarity it may cause can also stimulate the desire to delve into its secrets and revelations. For this journey, we only need to pack who we are and what know and feel.

But hold on! If you think we will only be looking at art, think again: we are also going to engage all of our senses to make this journey filled with crossroads a success.

In this tour-workshop, led by Cristina Campos, we propose a sensory journey that, with the help of objects, will trigger multiple levels of connection and facilitate personal involvement and knowledge construction. This moment of collective sharing will point the way forward: towards the universe of artists but also towards each one of us, with wonder and imagination.



Cristina Campos holds a bachelor's degree in Modern and Contemporary History, with a specialisation in Cultural Assets Management and Facilitation (Iscte), and postgraduate degrees in Cultural Management in Cities (INDEG-IUL) and Journalism (FCSH). Currently, she is pursuing a PhD in Art Education (FBAUL/IE). Her professional journey has revolved around artistic-cultural mediation projects, particularly within the museum context. In recent years, she has been involved in designing and leading various programmes aimed at audiences with Specific Educational Needs, as well as at the senior community, notably at the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian. Cristina has also taken part in various training activities in these areas, such as the international conference "i am. Inclusive and Accessible Museums" (part of the EU project "TANDEM: Tools and New Approaches for People with Disabilities Exploring Museums") and the capacity-building initiative "Mediating Audiences with Dementia," coordinated by the Alzheimer Portugal association.
