Participate in an Expat Research Survey

Many of us know that moving into a new culture can be challenging. What many of us don’t know are the psychological processes involved in the adjustment, the typical phases of adjustment and the acculturation style we adopt.

Knowing all this may help you understand and overcome the most common challenges of adjusting to a new and different culture.

At this event Dra. Deborah Dahab will talk about these issues and share some ideas of how to overcome the most common hurdles when acculturating in a new country.


Dra. Deborah Dahab is an IWP member and a researcher at the Centre for Psychological Research and Social Intervention at the Lisbon University Institute (CIS-ISCTE;Centro de Investigação e Intervenção Social – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa).

 

Dra Dahab will also present the insights and findings of a study developed at ISCTE-IUL (one of the most important universities in Social Sciences and Business in Portugal at Instituto Universitário de Lisboa – https://www.iscte-iul.pt) about the acculturation of Retired Expats in Portugal and  talk about a new study that is being prepared.”

Exhibition: José de Almada Negreiros: a way of being modern

To be modern is just like being elegant: it is not a way of dressing, but a way of being. To be modern is not to use the modern calligraphy, but to be the genuine discoverer of the new.  –  José de Almada Negreiros, conference O Desenho [Drawing], Madrid, 1927

A prolific and varied artist, Almada (1893-1970) embodied a heteroclite notion of the modern artist as a master of multiple crafts. To Almada, every art, in its various forms, was a part of the “spectacle” an artist was required to present to the public, so that every piece, gesture or attitude was a means to reveal a total idea of modernity.

The exhibition is a comprehensive retrospective on the work of an artist who propelled the avant-garde in the 1910s and whose career spanned the 20th century. It presents a body of work that reflects the complex, experimental, paradoxical and hybrid condition of modernity.

The Events Team is organizing a tour (in English) of this limited time, special exhibit of the very famous Portuguese modernist artist.

Pay at the museum but rsvp required by May 20. 

Starts at: 10 am

Where: MEETING PLACE SHARED UPON RSVP

Cost: Euro 11
