Departure: Sunday, July 24, from 5 pm


Alternative suggestions (to be provided autonomously): Barril de Alva Caravan Zone (free); Côja Camping Park (5 euros/day per person + 5 euros per tent)






There will be no catering service. Each participant is autonomous to bring their own meals, go out to eat or prepare them on site.


For those coming from abroad and staying at the Trust: the participants will have access to the kitchen to prepare their own meals. We suggest that you come to Barril de Alva already bringing the necessary ingredients for breakfast and the preparation of lunch and dinner, as there will be no time to go shopping in neighboring cities.


In the village of Barril de Alva there is only a small grocery store with basic items, a cafe and a restaurant.


As an alternative to preparing meals, you can go to the village café for breakfast and the only restaurant for lunch, or go to the neighboring village of Côja for lunch and dinner (it's necessary to go by car).


For local participants: it can be a good suggestion to bring your own lunch.






For those coming from outside the region, it is possible to arrive by car directly in the village or, alternatively, there are buses leaving from Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra to the bus stop of Catraia do Mouronho, where we  can pick you up. A common pick-up time will be arranged on Friday 22 July and a single departure time on Sunday 24 July at the end of the day. Depending on the number of people registered with a car, it will also be possible to organize rides.






Bring comfortable clothes and shoes, a hat, sun cream, swimming suit and towel.

The Modus Operandi AND is both a practical and theoretical interface, transversal to varied fields, that offers a toolbox in the for of Games for the investigation of singular and collective mechanisms for composition exercised as an ethics of co-positioning. It researches the politics of living together through the exercise of a triple procedure, synthetized in the portuguese word Reparar: stopping again, making the inventory-invention of the possible each time, and carrying out a work of reparation through the durational care-curation of relationships. Practicing awareness and ways-of-doing that are based on the circunscription of the common and the performativity of affect, the Modus Operandi AND enables the emergence of collaborative landscapes and in-between territories of sufficiency.


Through several exercises that take thinking and doing in one same plane, the Modus Operandi AND enables the direct and experiential investigation of the singular and collective mechanisms of togetherness, proposing concrete tools for stimulating processes of collaboration, apprenticeship and negotiation of togetherness. MO_AND enables, specifically, the recognition of behavioral patterns and relational tendencies, contributing to the development of emotional self-regulation, attention-handling (selection, focus and coordination of stimuli), decision-making and decision-taking abilities.


In the framework of workshops, the 'board game' interface serves as a basis for sharing MO_AND, and is consequently unfolded in diverse and more complex exercises, with different scales, in the studio or on the street, depending on the group and the duration of the workshop. This game has no pre-established rules but rather immanent rules that emerge from playing. The rules emerge from the co-positioning and co-responsibility of participants. Through a work of folding-and-unfolding and direct handling of the materiality of events, it is possible to 'think with our hands', giving body to matters of coexistence, sustainability, creativity, attunement, tolerance and reciprocity.


The exercises allow participation from people with diverse interests and profiles – coming from any field, with or without previous contact among them or with MO_AND - to share a same plane of concern, experientially and collectively experimenting the ethical-political and affective issues involved in the co-responsible construction of the common and the sustainability of bonds of reciprocity.
