Teatro Metaphora is a non-profit association whose purpose is to organize cultural and educational activities for the benefit of the community’s development. Our objectives are to develop the social and personal competencies of children, youth, and adults through non-formal education principles.
In 2019, we were recognized by European Commission winning “The European Sustainability Award”. This award had no monetary prize.
GREEN STEPS – is a long-term environmental-artistic project in which the community, especially youth are activated towards environmental protection in an innovative and creative way by collecting urban waste and transforming it into art pieces.
In the same year, we received from the hands of the President of the Republic of Portugal a national award, the Gulbenkian Prize for Sustainability, for being considered a reference as a youth organization that promotes ecological behaviours and raises awareness for sustainable development.
The Green Steps installations have already been exhibited in mainland Portugal and abroad: e.g. the Amsterdam Light Festival 2018-2019.
