We at CCAS are delighted announce that our first international intern Inês Valle is on her way to Canberra! Inês is currently working on her thesis for the Master in Curatorial Studies (Fine Art University of Lisbon/ Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation). Her thesis focuses on the strength of artistic practice in conflict territories (political, religious, and cultural) and intends to provoke engagement, and consequently change the way we believe and face the surrounding reality. She has been collaborating with several Portuguese Art Institutions, namely Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB) and Carpe Diem Arte Pesquisa; and writing articles for the only contemporary art magazine in Portugal, Arte Capital. She has just departed form Turkey having completed a curatorial residency there and only days ago received a Merit Scholarship from her University. Inês’s Internship has been supported by DG Artes through Inovart Portugal. Expect to see a lot of her both in and out of the social pages.
