For the 5th EDITION of WOOL, once again we brought to Covilhã a group of 4 artists, 2 portuguese and 2 foreigners.Pastel (Argentina), Roc Blackblock (Spain), Aheneah (Portugal) and Draw (Portugal) were invited to develop interventions in the historic center, once again inspired by the local identity, which we consider to be everything that makes this place unique: traditions, songs, gastronomy, personalities, history, fauna and flora, etc.

After surprising everyone with the identity of WOOL 2018 in carpet form (and material), Aheneah came to Covilhã to pay homage to her great-grandmother Narcisa, to whom she owes all the teachings that she continues to practice and promote in her daily work.
I think we can extend the thread and say that this is a tribute to all the great-grandparents, grandmothers and mothers who help (or try to) keep these traditions alive.
