All the Lisbon ways lead you to China in February
Lisbon Downtown, between Mouraria and Arroios neighborhoods, is where more immigrant communities live togheter, about four thousand legal people. This was the starting point of Arroios Around the World Project 1/11, which wants to promote the culture, cuisine and customs of different existing communities, such as Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, Angola, Bangladesh, Ukraine, Morocco or India.
The project aims to integrate multiple communities and intercultural sharing through various cultural weeks that take place once a month.The initiative will last until June 2015.
February is the month to learn more about Chinese traditions. From 16 to 21 February various activities are planned including the celebration of Chinese New Year, the biggest festival of Chinese culture, with the big Dragon Dance parade scheduled for February 21 at 11h00, starting at Intendente Square up to Martim Moniz Square. Music, dance and workshops are being planned by the organization. Come celebrate Chinese New Year with us!
