Carlos Carrilho

He was born in 1967 in Lisbon, but spent most of his childhood and adolescence in Portalegre. The singularity of the beautiful landscapes of the São Mamede hill and the Alto Alentejo region may have been responsible for his passion for nature, art and culture.
He studied Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture of the Universidade Técnica de Lisboa and History of Art and Design at the National Society of Fine Arts and AR.CO in Lisbon. He has also attended multiple courses related to art, aesthetics, photography, theatre, dance and film.
Since 1997, he has been working with several cultural institutions, both public and private, as a Cultural Mediator, in the areas of art, architecture, landscape and environmental education. He is responsible for conceiving and performing different types of activities, including guided trips to exhibitions, buildings, parks and gardens, urban spaces and multiple sites of historical, ecological and environmental relevance. Some of the institutions he has collaborated with recently include the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Berardo Museum, the National Museum of Antique Art, the Portuguese Institute of Museums and Conservation, the National Palace of Ajuda and the House of Stories of Paula Rego.
He loves travelling, walking, meditating, reading, listening to music and talking to people.
His favourite destinations in Portugal are the Alto Alentejo, Costa Vicentina, Douro Internacional, Lisbon and its outskirts, including Sintra, Cascais and Serra da Arrábida.
He loves food and thinks of gastronomy as one of the most important elements to learn about a different culture.
His favourite dish is grilled fish with potatoes and vegetables.
