Night Projects

During ICNS.LX we will host a project session that aims to make the acquaintance of great projects working about the night in the city of Lisbon.

Have a glimpse of some of the projects that will be presented in this session:


LXNIGHTS examines how Lisbon’s new ‘distinguished’ urban nightscapes produce (and are simultaneously a product of) three distinct but interrelated urban processes – gentrification, studentification, and touristification.

Kosmicare is internationally recognized for pioneering the implementation of full spectrum harm reduction interventions at large-scale festivals, specifically at Boom Festival, and urban nightlife environments. Recently, Kosmicare was granted with a government-level funding and is implementing, in Lisbon, a harm reduction and safer nightlife project that includes a drop-in with drug checking and counselling to support drug-related psychological crisis, campaigns targeting key-populations, peer education and outreach interventions in parties and festivals in the city.

Sexism Free Night EU is an European project (856934 – REC-AG-2018/REC-RDAP-GBV-AG-2018) coordinated by the Portuguese Catholic University with the partnership of ClubCommissionBerlin, NEWNET, Fundación Salud y Comunidad(Spain), biedriba Kanepes Laikmetigas KulturasCentrs (Latvia), and Re generation (Serbia). The main objective of this project is to reduce sexual violence and sexism in nightlife scenes by raise awareness among party goers and promote safer and more egalitarian nightlife environments.

NITE is a three-year collaborative project funded by HERA (2019-22) that studies eight European cities to understand how night spaces (in their material, symbolic and virtual dimensions) are produced, imagined, experienced and narrated by migrant communities in Europe. NITE aims to support community wellbeing and better integration at local, national and transnational levels.
