Socially engaged art project developed in a neighbourhood of illegal construction in Amadora, on the outskirts of Lisbon, precisely the Barrio da Estrada do Alto da Damaia. In partnership with local associations, training actions were created related to multimedia literacy, open to the participation of the local population. The activities were initially delineated with the collaboration of social psychologists and social workers and later adjusted according to the participants’ expressed interests. The learning activities' purpose was to train people concerning the use of multimedia and ICT, which represents an essential factor for the residents’ social inclusion and cultural valorisation.
