PARTNERSHIP MUSEUM AND ASSOCIATION OF ARCHITECTS – NORTHERN REGION SECTION 

The Transport and Communications Museum has established a partnership with the Order of Architects – Northern Region Section (in Portuguese, OASRN) with the prime goal of cooperation in the mutual promotion of initiatives, the sharing of OASRN’s collection for the museum exhibits, as well as the practice of beneficial entrance price to visit the Museum in the scope of the weekday dedicated to culture (Tuesday) that is promoted by OASRN (50% discount on the public entrance price of any Museum access ticket with the presentation of the “Protocol Card” by members of OASRN).

 

PARTNERSHIP MUSEUM AND TRAVELLING AGENCY SANDINENSE MGC

The Transport and Communications Museum has established a partnership with the Travelling Agency Sandinense MGC through the creation of a new product that joins transportation and field trip. Thus, together with our partners, we want to diversify the support to teachers when booking a field trip, making the administrative work of the organization easier.
 

PARTNERSHIP MUSEUM AND CP (Portuguese Trains)

It is easier to get to us!
The Transport and Communications Museum has established a partnership with CP – Portuguese Trains with the objective to ease and speed our group visitors’ transportation. The advantage for the institutions that adhere to this “promotional package” is in the very advantageous value of the trip
 

S. JOÃO HOSPITAL AND PORTUGUESE INSTITUTE OF ONCOLOGY OPORTO FRANCISCO GENTIL, E.P.E

The Museum has established, at the beginning of 2016, a partnership with the S. João Hospital and with the Portuguese Institute of Oncology Porto Francisco Gentil, E.P.E. “The Museum Hour” is, thus, a cooperative project with the paediatric services of both institutions aiming to promoting moments of sharing and entertainment for hospitalized children and their accompanying families, in these delicate periods of their lives.

 

CUSTOMS HOUSE: LIGHT AND SHADOW | MIRAGAIA NEIGHBOURHOOD

The project “Customs House: Light and Shadow” began in 2015 in partnership with: the Pre-school of the Miragaia Parish Social Centre and the S. Nicolau Parish Social Centre (the groups “Get down to business” and “Young Veterans”). Here, the emphasis is on the Customs House building and its surroundings under the auspices of the International Year of the Light (UNESCOS’s declaration of 2015). The contact, the sharing and the developed activities with the local community (Miragaia and S. Nicolau) have always been the setting tone of the Museum cultural action and social function. In this framework, the project intends, in a first phase, to gather diverse elements that show peoples’ perception of the” Customs House” through drawings, essays, photography, videos, etc.). In a second phase, there is the visit to the building and museum, particularly the visit to the permanent exhibition “Metamorphoses of a Place: Customs House Museum”. Here, the visitors will make new opinion registries, in diverse supports in order to understand what has changed since the first impression.

 

GIL’S FOUNDATION

The Museum collaborated (2009-2014) with the Gil’s Foundation with the entertainment of paediatric wards of the city’s hospitals: S. João Hospital, Sto. António Hospital and Portuguese Institute of Oncology, through the “The Tale Hour”. Every month, the Museum contributes with its stories so that children and their families can enjoy moments that allow them escaping the hospital environment where they temporarily are living.

 

ANILUPA/CLIA

During the three-year period of 2011-2013, in the second edition of the project “Unknown Porto”, the Museum collaborated with ANILUPA/CLIA – Play Centre of the Animated Image of the Porto Toy Library Association and with diverse museum and social institutions of the Porto Historical Centre. The general goal of this project was to register, to value and to animate life stories of the senior population of this area through the animation cinema technique. As in the first edition, the Museum worked closely with the Miragaia Parish Social Centre.

VARIATIONS ABOUT EUROPE

In 2013, the partnership with SevenFeet made possible the development of creative workshops for adults where they reflected on the Citizens’ Europe. The exhibition TO COMMUNICATE was the perfect space for the reflection moments and the creation of short movies on the theme. This action is one of the several sides of a wider project promoted by the European Commission, Variations about Europe.

 

INTERNSHIPS/INVESTIGATION PROJECTS

The Museum regularly cooperates with professional and superior education institutions receiving internships or following up on investigation projects. Hence, the Museum opens up to the educational community and actively participates in the process of training interns.
The key moments of this process are the knowledge of the Museum organization and dynamics, observation periods to contact with the museum practices and presentation of proposals that aim the improvement of the Museum service quality with its various publics.

 

WEDUC

The Transport and Communications Museum has established a partnership with WEDUC – an exclusive social network for educational agents (schools, parents and other educational institutions).
This network was designed aiming at gathering and increasing the participation/communication between all parties of the educative process.
The integration of non-formal educational institutions, such as museums, in this social network reinforces and gives great contribution to strengthen the “communication bridges” between all parties of this educative process (schools, parents and other educational institutions).
