The well-known singer-songwriter Paulo de Carvalho is today, Thursday, the special guest of another Literary Pod’quest, a cycle of online activities that has been taking place since April with the organization of students from the Higher School of Education of the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal (ESE/IPS).
Musician, composer, and owner of the unmistakable voice of “And after goodbye”, the song that served as the first password to the April Revolution, Paulo de Carvalho will be talking, in an informal register, with Ana Alcântara, historian and teacher at ESE/IPS, about his career and how he overcame the dictatorship’s obstacles to his creative freedom, and also about the historical importance of music and its role, in particular, in the conquest of democracy in Portugal.
The session, which takes place from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, on the Zoom and Youtube platforms, is part of the “Batidas Literárias” project, which is being developed by the 2nd year class of the degree in Animation and Sociocultural Intervention, within the curricular unit of Design, Project Development and Evaluation.
Among the foreseen objectives are the promotion of the taste for reading, the recognition of the lyrics of songs as literary writing, the understanding of the creative and cultural dimension of the singers and the development of creativity by mobilizing diverse languages and supports.
The Literary Pod’quest continues every Thursday at the same time until May 20.
