INTERVIR HEROES AND VILLAINS | An artistic and social intervention project
Modern Art Centre Arts Education Department CESIS | Centre for Research in Social Intervention | Escolhas
Oct 2007 | Jun 2008
Brief context description
In the context of the Open Museum programme (programmes designed for groups with special educational needs) developed by
the Arts Education Department of the Modern Art Centre a partnership was established with the Attended Itineraries programme
(financed by the "Escolhas" National Programme) of the CESIS | Centre for Research in Social Intervention.
The partnership aimed to develop an artistic and social intervention project, with the duration of a school year, designed for young
students at risk of early school drop out.
The target population were twelve young boys and girls with learning difficulties and ages between 11 and 17 currently
participating in the Attended Itineraries programme, a community project created by CESIS, in Bairro do Zambujal, a social
quarter in the district of Amadora, to prevent school drop out and improve literacy skills.
The artistic project Intervir, was developed during 9 months (a school year) on a weekly basis, both in the youngsters residency
area and at the Modern Art Centre Arts and Education Department, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
Starting points and aims:
To use arts education to raise social and personal awareness
To question social stereotypes in the surrounding visual culture
To debate and question identity construction patterns and improve self-confidence through creative thinking
To use contemporary art as a vital force for change and critical thinking
To develop creative and reflexive skills through the use of different artistic expressions
(Drama, photography and video)
To promote personal and community empowerment and develop transferable skills
The project visible outcomes:
10 final self-portrais under the theme: heroes and villains
A documentary
A blog
A community presentation (parents and school) December 2008
An exhibition at the Modern Art Centre March 2009

The theme Heroes and Villains:
The subject was proposed by the museum educators and negotiated with the young participants in a partnership process.
The choice of the subject intended to promote a critical reflection on the social stereotypes and prejudices, starting from a theme
that belongs to the symbolic universe of all the participating individuals and present in most visual culture manifestations they use
to represent themselves.
Based on their familiar universe of references the project aimed to promote active, critical and creative debate about identity
construction that would serve as the basis for the creation of a set of self-portraits as a personal transformation arts project.
The tension between the antinomy hero/villain allowed us to work the frontier zone and to debate the creation of categories of
labelling of social roles and the exclusion systems they create.
