3rd Urban Audiovisual Festival: “Night and City”

Scientific audio-visual production, not very considered by many disciplines, finds in the UAF a privileged scenario, both for the presentation of works and for the evaluation of the audio-visual methods applied to the study of the urban. Likewise, the UAF invites its screens to unconventional productions, made with mobile devices or exploring other forms of production of moving images. The use of new techniques is another of the main objectives of the UAF, as it aims to make known the innovations made and their multiple applications to the study of contemporary cities. The UAF is an invitation to watch the cities. To join to a debate far beyond the screens.

The Urban Audio-visual Festival – UAF emerges as a place for discussion and dialogue between professionals who work on urban life. This scientific meeting aims to promote the production of quality and the dissemination of the audio-visual work carried out by researchers and filmmakers in the field of urban studies, as well as other related disciplines. The UAF is a cultural project developed by (des)Calçada Association with the academic and scientific support of CIES-IUL, CICS-NOVA and IS-UP.

What happens when the sun falls?
Night has been one of those invisible borders throughout history. For many it represents the opposite of the day, for others its continuity, for others the origin of the whole. It is undoubtedly a moment full of controversy, imagination, the unknown, but also opportunities, work and needs.
When we think about the night and the city, it’s almost impossible not to imagine the neons and exterior panels of Las Vegas or Hong Kong or any other urban center. Electric light revolutionized the night space, expelling the darkness of the streets and with it many characters of the night. The illuminated city has improved the “after hours” circulation of people, cars and goods, reducing risks and accidents, but at the same time creating new shadows, and places for those who should not be seen during the day.
The 24-hour city does not sleep, it is a constant activity, a continuous flow of services and people. Health professionals, such as doctors and nurses, are on watch to take care of a world exposed to constant accidents, illness and emergencies; firefighters and police are always on guard to help in case of unforeseen events … there are many nighttime heroes.
There are many professions that are developed during bedtime, such as garbage collectors, hotel receptionists, hauliers, bakers … there are many who live upside down so that we can have our streets clean, our bills ready, the our mail in the mailbox or our bread for breakfast. But like these professions, there are others who work in the shadows created between lampposts, some well-liked, such as food delivery people for the homeless; others, stigmatized, such as sex workers. Night is still the other side of a society of contrasts.
Night is likewise the realm of brown cats, those who seek anonymity to live their fantasies, or to commit atrocious crimes. The night is a disconnected moment that harnesses the dream of many to create action, entertainment or escape scenarios, while singing in a karaoke, wearing platform shoes and make-up, or frozen with the emptiness sound of a shot.
We must not forget all those who play with others’ suffering, addictions, helplessness, and pain. The night seems to cover and unmask at the same time those who live on the margins of our society. The Grimm brothers’ monsters continue today, but with other faces.
On the other hand, the night is also a festive moment of encounter and socialization. Whether it’s a bar, nightclub, party or art festival, people take to the streets to meet in a different environment, build memories, meet new people or even love.
The night is a space of possibilities, of silence and forgetfulness. What happens at night does not have to continue after dawn. We talk about moments of continuity and discontinuity in the contemporary city, and your portraits are especially welcome.
We invite the submission of works that approach the night in any of its multiple faces, that portrays what happens when we sleep, that gives voice to those we do not see when we live at another time, … works that put the night in the center of our eyes.

CONCISE – Consulta Pública em Comunicação de Ciência
(16 de novembro – 9h30 / 17h00 – Lisboa, Centro Cultural de Belém)

O Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa está a organizar uma consulta pública no âmbito do projeto CONCISE que irá ter lugar no dia 16 de novembro no Centro Cultural de Belém, em Lisboa. O projeto CONCISE, financiado pela UE, tem como objetivo perceber que papel desempenha a comunicação de ciência nos conhecimentos e crenças sobre assuntos científicos dos cidadãos Europeus: https://concise-h2020.eu/pt/

A consulta pública CONCISE consiste em discussões em mesa redonda sobre quatro tópicos e terá a duração de um dia. Aos participantes selecionados irá ser pedido que, em pequenos grupos, discutam temas relacionados com a comunicação pública e a sua perceção de temas relacionados com ciência, nomeadamente: vacinas, alterações climáticas, organismos geneticamente modificados, e o uso de medicinas alternativas. Esta atividade irá desenvolver-se entre as 9h30 e as 17h, incluindo intervalos para descanso e almoço.
Pretendemos recrutar voluntários com perfis sociais diferenciados de todo o país. Não é preciso ter experiência ou conhecimento específico sobre os tópicos a discutir. Os únicos requisitos para participar são: ter 18 anos ou mais, viver em Portugal e ser fluente em Português. Os cidadãos irão contribuir para o estudo de forma voluntária (isto é, não irão receber qualquer retribuição monetária pela sua participação), no entanto as despesas de transporte, alojamento e alimentação serão asseguradas pela organização. Os voluntários também irão receber um brinde e entradas gratuitas para alguns museus da cidade de Lisboa.
O principal objetivo da consulta é que os cidadãos partilhem as suas opiniões e experiências sobre a forma como a informação científica chega ao público. Os moderadores poderão colocar questões para facilitar os diálogos, mas não existem respostas certas ou erradas. Todas as contribuições contam e são essenciais para aumentar o conhecimento do CONCISE sobre as fontes que os cidadãos usam para aceder a informação sobre ciência e de que modo formam opiniões e tomam decisões relacionadas com assuntos científicos.
