Darte News Month by Month - April 2016

(Posted: 2016-05-06 | Organization: Projecto Darte | Category: Member Reports)

Please find attached our April newsletter, filled with news and pictures that will make you smile: our Darte Students' projects, a visit from the Azores, a wooden alphabet, an international interview and a sweet gift.

We are still looking for a new office for Projecto Darte in Lisbon, where we can have 3 things in 2 rooms: office, training room and many shelves to keep our art materials. Please spread the word and let us know if you know of any opportunity. This is really important for Projecto Darte's future.

Thank you so much.

Best regards,
Margarida Seruya

Darte News Month by Month - March 2016

(Posted: 2016-04-04 | Organization: Projecto Darte | Category: Member Reports)

Dear all,

Please find attached the March newsletter of Projecto Darte.

Firstly I highlight an important request:

We are looking for a place in Lisbon where to have both our office and a training room where we can also keep the materials. Currently we have both, but in opposite zones of Lisbon, which makes things a bit difficult to manage with the growing amount of work.

I would also like to highlight our special acknowledgement to Carris, Deloitte and KIA. I invite you to read the second page of the newsletter to learn why.

Wishing you all a good month,
Margarida Seruya
