“CONTRAST: Multidisciplinary artistic network of Art, Architecture, Design and Photography initiatives” project, headed by the AAI-CEAU-FAUP research group, coordinated by Pedro Leão Neto, to be jointly managed with ESMAD-uniMAD and i2ads-FBAUP, was selected for funding through DGARTES support program – Criação e Edição. CONTRAST is an interdisciplinary cultural informative project focused on the creation of a network of artistic initiatives and critical reflection encouraging debates about art, architecture and design. Through proposals coming from Creation, Editorial and Teaching worlds of photography in several disciplinary areas, we pretend to reinforce the artistic and editorial offer, as well as the access and participation in the arts. This network is based on the partnership established between nine schools coming from the art, architecture, design and photography areas, among them: Ar.Co; DARQ - Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra; DCAM - Film and Media Arts Department at Universidade Lusófona; Escola Superior Artística do Porto (ESAP); Escola Superior de Media Artes e Design (ESMAD); Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto (FAUP); Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa (FBAUL); Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto (FBAUP); Instituto Politécnico de Tomar (IPT) and three other schools: Liverpool School of Architecture (LSA), Zaragosa Unidad Predepartamental de Arquitectura da Universidade de Zaragoza (UNIZAR) e Barcelona Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya BarcelonaTech (UPC).
