The association Odiana was founded by the municipalities of Alcoutim, Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António in December 1998. It is a non-profit association whose main goal is to contribute to the economic, social, and cultural development of the Baixo Guadiana region.
Traditional Knowledge Workshops
The «Workshops of Traditional Knowledge» project aims, in a dynamic and interactive way, to revitalize and promote some of the Baixo Guadiana traditions, such as XXX.
The aging of the population has led to the disappearance of trades and traditions and it is essential that we can develop actions to minimize this pattern and risk of completely extinguishing local knowledge of the past, which would contribute to the de-characterization of the identity and culture of the Baixo Guadiana region.
In this context, we aim to revitalize local traditions and knowledge and to boost the local economy through developing innovative, participatory creative workshops based on learning and “freshening” ancestral traditions and knowledge, and promoting interaction between local craftsmen/artisans and tourists.
