Christmas Triangle: TEDxYouth@Aveiro / Obra da Criança / Associação de Melhoramentos de Eixo
Christmas is coming, and so we will launch a little challenge to all the participants of TEDxYouth @Aveiro! We would like to ask each participant to bring on the 20 November to Aveiro Expo a toy, new or old, a children’s book, new or used… Something that can make a difference for hungry children in our region. Associations “A Obra da Criança” from Ílhavo, and “Associação de Melhoramentos de Eixo” from Aveiro are the entities responsible for distributing these Christmas gifts for children in need of the districts of Aveiro and Ílhavo.
We count on your small contribution.

Agor@ Aveiro,
This recently created association for the promotion od Active citizenship will promote their local and international projects and show what can you do if your curiosity is overcoming the limits of our planet. How about the trip to the Universe and paying a visit to the “house” of misterious molecules for the luckiest one?

Artshare will share something that you probably haven´t seen yet – Body Draw! An interactive visual system who makes possible drawing with your own body! A video camera captures images that are changed by computer program created specially for that purpose, and projected full scale. This form of real-time interaction transforms participants into artists.

There will be more performers who will be in charge of artistic side if the event. Frederico Diniz will take care of the adequate musical background, and Rosa Rufino, young artist from Aveiro, will lead an interesting drawing workshop where even the non-talented can discover their talent.

diniz (aka Frederico Dinis) started his “music journey” in 1989, on the local radio. After he worked as animator and programme producer at RCP and RUC radios in Coimbra and Aveiro. Also, he worked in mythical bars of Coimbra in 90’s: Sécristia, Quebra Costas, Scotch Club and States. Before he was more oriented to the electronic sounds, as techno, trance or deep house, but nowadays his sets are based on nujazz, chill-out, lounge and downtempo, with a touch of IDM and drum’n’bass. This sounds mixture is the core of his famous sessions: “nujazz & lounge flavours” and “hypnotic electronic grooves”. He has worked in the production of electronic music, mixing the different themes as amish 82, octex, troupe and ylid… At the moment he is a resident DJ in the “Galeria Santa Clara”, Coimbra, where, on Sundays, he harmonicaly mixes swing, be-bop, hard-bop and cool jazz with modern jazz tendencies.

Rosa Rufino: I was born in Aveiro in 1988. I draw since I was 2 and dance since I was 4.
I studied design at Universidade de Aveiro and I’m now taking master in Artistic Anatomy at Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa.
I like to learn, feel, think and change.
