Additional Section

Jo Kalagary (1987) is a Brazilian artist and cultural producer, now based in Lisbon. The artist’s been working in cultural production, events idealization and artistic presentations for a long time, including Favela LX that once was a bar and a performance venue that promoted diversity and representativity.

Favela Lx also promoted open talks and a stage for minorities to have a voice in a collaborative way, touching on issues such as racism, xenophobia, LGBTQphobia and misogyny. In 2018, Favela LX has closed the physical space due to financial struggle and gentrification but the project has survived and it is bearing fruits and collaborations.

As an artist Kalagary is interested in addressing the black body and the African diaspora in his works of performance, collage, painting and installation. For the context of the residency, Jo intends to create a series of NFTs and a physical installation about ancestry and African spiritual concepts.


Love this and excited to hear more about the plans

If it would help we have a lot of links to LGTQ+ organisations in Lisbon including ILGA who could work as a good connector

Welcome to the NEAR forum Jo :pray:


Love the idea!! And sure Lisbon does need more things like this :wink:


Great job on your ideation submission - looking forward to seeing next steps!


I think together [arroz] can do better. I do know ILGA and all the other that work with LGBTQ+ ad nothing is better then do it “alone” then invite them to colaborate in some panel.
