The talk about the collaborative project Travessia, by Susan Meiselas in collaboration with members of the African and Afro-descendant community in Porto, took place at the Common House (Rectory of the University of Porto), on March 15th. Lydia Matthews, Susan Meiselas, Cinthia Bodenhorst, Lígia Ferro, Beatriz Lacerda, Maria Cláudia Henriques, Dori Nigro and Ismael Calliano participated in the conversation.

The exhibition Travessia is an «expanded documentary», the result of a process in which Meiselas invited members of Porto’s Black community to guide her on virtual walks through the city’s streets, sharing memories of their daily lives and revealing aspects of Porto that remain invisible to many local residents.
