The "PESCARTE" Project focused on the research and development of handicraft techniques associated with the activities of the fishing communities of the county of Odemira: Vila Nova de Milfontes, Longueira Almograve, Entrada da Barca and Azenha do Ma, with the aim of innovating through the design and responsible involvement of fishermen and artisans. Thus, it is intended to re-introduce local crafts to the community itself and the "market" with a new image and future commercial perspective.
We work with over 80 partner entities - companies, foundations, museums, associations
