This workshop by E-DA - Ensaios e Diálogos Associação and its construction group Gatomorto, at Vale de Alcântara, focused on the memories of its participants. Entitled "The Beasts", the workshop included a sequence of activities from the gathering of memories, photographs and local stories, to the construction of soapbox cars and the organization of a race. The main objective of this action was to live the experience of building one's own car and bring people together around an exciting event!
