Day 1 | Tuesday, 13th

Launch Networking Party

Cocktail Dinatoire

ECHF Lisbon '15 Delegates will join over 300 Portuguese arts professionals in a networking party to remember.

Hosted in one of Lisbon's great palaces, the home to the contemporary arts organisation Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa, the evening will showcase the very best of Portugal's creative talent alonside artistic interventions from UK artists Scottee and Brian Lobel.

Scottee is an artist and broadcaster from Kentish Town, North London.
He is a regular contributor for BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Huffington Post and i-D magazine. Scottee is currently an associate artist at Olivier award winning company Duckie and the iconic Roundhouse.
Scottee is not easily definable; broken limbs, sequin jumpsuits, a big heart, a strong head and piles of fake eyelashes. There's no doubting he has a determination to please his audiences with his brash, clumsy and provocative approach to art, performance and light entertainment.
He'll leave you elated, sometimes tearful, confused & often covered in confetti.

Brian Lobel is a performer, teacher and curator who creates work about bodies and how they are watched, policed, poked, prodded and loved by others. The New York-born, London-based performer has shown work internationally in a range of contexts, from medical schools to galleries, cabarets to museums, marketplaces to forests, blending provocative humor with insightful reflection. Major projects include BALL & Other Funny Stories About Cancer,Purge, Hold My Hand and We’re Halfway There, Ruach, Carpe Minuta Prima, and Cruising for Art which have been presented all around the world. He is a Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts at University of Chichester, Associate Artist with Clod Ensemble's Performing Medicine, a Core Artist with Forest Fringe, and a Wellcome Trust Public Engagement Fellow.
