Reading in Lisbon

On Saturday, the 16th of June, after making a rushed up speech at the SWITCH Conference, organised by 19 year-old Ricardo Sousa, I hurried down to ARTE & MANHA, where I was on a panel discussing the challenges of artistic creation in Africa. Different panelists are from Portugal, Estonia, Guinea Bissau and Angola. I had a nice time, really, talking about arts in the continent.

Later in the evening, I read to a small audience, which had Portugal's top actor and model, Jose Fidalgo as a guest. He had travelled all the way from Porto with his wife just to be there.

We really had an amazing evening. I am off to Brazil on Wednesday for Rio + 20.
