Forces of Nature #13

The Ponta Delgada – Azores 2027 bid for European Capital of Culture has launched the “Forces of Nature” photographic series, by the photographer Paulo Goulart. The aim is to show that our nature is human, by showing people that build the culture of this place.

Jesse James is a curator and cultural programmer that lives between Ponta Delgada and Lisbon. He is the co-founder of Anda&Fala Cultural Association and the co-director of Walk&Talk – Arts Festival and vaga – space of art and knowledge. His favourite places on the island are usually on its edges because of their expansive quality, energy, and intersecting movements. He has been discovering landscapes and places that make him want to explore further other rhythms and sources of knowledge. His projects with Anda&Fala are territory-oriented, tackling ecological, inter-species, and decolonial issues.
