OGR Project in stills

Sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words. OGR Sessions is the result of the OGR Project. This collection of photographs from day 1 are also a collection of new and old relationships, of collaborative, inclusive and motivational dialogues were the learning curve went in both ways.

We started separate roads leading to a mutual goal and ended following a single path with the collected knowledge from India and Portugal Teams. We certainly growed together and together will be able to ascertain more in the future.

Teresa Teves Reis and Mónica Esteves Reis start the mission for OGR. Before the remaining team arrives, there is lot to be done.

OGR Team on the quest for the right answers

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our OGR team has been preparing the dossiers for the fieldwork in Old Goa starting next week. One of the tasks is analysing the samples from the viceroys portraits at MNAA in Lisbon. This will allow us to have a set of comparative results while cooperating with A.S.I. in the Archaeological Museum in Old Goa.

Visa? Check!

Our team is running a multiplicity of “shows”, each in every direction so that the project starts as it is designed. Be it data check and last minute details, corporate image and communication, institutional contacts, timetables and presentations, OGR is definitely  in full motion.

Visas

Today, we got our visas from the Indian Embassy in Lisbon and that means we are fully approved by the Indian Government to start our endeavours with the A.S.I., and it is our honour to be able to cooperate with this historical organization that runs under the Ministry of Culture of the Indian Government.

Keep posted for more about OGR!
