Bicentenary of the Napoleonic Invasions-exhibition

Great news! the proposal for the exhibition has been accepted and we can send up to 5 photos.

The theme is the bicentenary of the Napoleonic Invasions and this is what I proposed: “We would be interested to do a re-enactement of the battle scenes from a contemporary urban/youth culture perspective. “We can  print the photos size A0 here in the  uni if you have space to accommodate, or smaller if needed ”

Ana Efe, the exhibition curator, sent images of the exhibition space (our space is the one with no tiles):

I’ve also found out the flights london -porto return are cheap ,  from £30 ( see screenshot) so those of you that would like to attend the opening party (on the 9th of may, a saturday) may want to check it out at the ryanair website. also, find about youth hostel here.

initial invitation sent out by ana efe:
