ESAP – Escola Superior Artística de Porto, is located in the city center of Porto and was established by the Cooperative of Higher Artistic Education of Porto (CESAP), a non-profit public utility entity established in May 1982. Specialized in architecture, plastic and intermediate arts, visual arts, cinema, audiovisuals and theatre, it is a reference organisation on the peninsular and European university scene. Promoting the confluence between theory, research, curatorship, the professional sector and artists, it reveals that this is the way for educational projects to aspire to excellence and improve the cultural and socio-economic outlook of the territory in which they are developed.

Novos Cinemas invited the teacher and Technician Responsible for the Office of External and International Relations, and director of the Department of Image Arts at ESAP, Tiago Vieira da Silva, to share with our audience the singularities of this avant-garde project.
