While Lisbon’s reputation as a hip, expat-welcoming arts hub is growing, this conflicts with the memories of local creatives who struggled through hardships. Big Ideas in Lisbon is hosting Creative Xchanges and will feature four international artist-residents telling stories of their challenges being creative in a country known for saudade and ranked in the lower tier of global “happiness” ratings. Amanda Booth (UK) Jonathan Weighman (UK), Suresh Nampuri (Germany) will tell their stories, moderated by local Irish-Canadian writer and musician, Peter D. Murphy. Music afterward by Bosnian singer-songwriter-turned-Lisboeta-fadista, Maja Milinkovic, who launched her fado album in Lisbon in 2017. Free wine and petiscos, sponsored by Sonae. Free event.
