About  Many Lovers Book 1267

Many Lovers Book 4267 is a philosophy book in which its author highlights ‘lack of LOVE’ as the cankerworm eating through the fabrics of societies, destroying minds and people, and causing reparable and irreparable conflicts. It is an encyclopaedia of over 40 volumes which explains the philosophy and concept known as ‘Touch LOVE’ or ‘Touch’ or Touch LOVE Worldwide’. Touch LOVE philosophy advocates the installation of several and diverse ‘LOVE STOPS’ in communities as a solution and a way of tackling that disability known as lack of LOVE. A LOVE stop is a space where individuals stop to refill their LOVE tanks with LOVE energy. Just as buses stop at bus stops, individuals can stop at LOVE stops. Many LOVERS simply adds, in its writer’s unique way, another voice to existing voices, which recognise LOVE as the only solution, which heals, lifts, beautifies and nourishes both its giver and its receiver at the same time.

THE CERA PROJECT founded during the Spring of 2016 by the independent curator Inês Valle, departs from the premise that ‘if the world is flat, as the prophets of globalization proclaim, then what happens on the underside?”. CERA project is envisaged as an itinerant platform for the promotion and exhibition of arts on an international level, that aims to focus on dialogues with the Global South’s narratives. The platform encourages the development of critical engagement between artists, curators, writers, scientists and collectors through an umbrella of different kind of art projects.
