RESGATE e PROCURA (Rescue and Search) has its starting point in the project ILHAS 2010 (Islands 2010) and is the result of an artistic commission made within the context of the 6th edition of the Festival “encontros do DeVIR” 2020.
This exhibition intends to promote the access to research projects carried out by the Algarve University (UAlg) and increase public awareness of environmental issues in this region.

Each and every occupant on this planet is to some extent an uncontrolled polluter who can play a decisive role in saving it. This potential tends to be exercised in different ways and intensities, which in many cases depend on the jobs we have but also on how our lives are affected by pollution and climate change.
With the sea in mind, more particularly the Ria Formosa, a sensitive and poorly protected territory, our challenge is to contribute towards the visibility of the work of teams of researchers from the University of Algarve that address urgent issues regarding the safeguarding of the barrier islands.


Through a large-format photography exhibition, tour and visit to the island, we provide both residents and visitors with images and information that can make us more pro-active, more aware but also more complicit in combating the changes to which our habitat is subjected.

* Participants can go to the Island by their own means or gather in Olhão to take the boat at 10h30.
