Margarida Botto

Margarida Donas Botto is a Senior Technician at the General Directorate for Cultural Heritage, in Lisbon, and works in the Communication Division. She coordinates and produces the radio programme “Encontros com o Património”, which is broadcast weekly, on topics and searches linked to the world of Culture, and also co-authors the project (a)Riscar o Património, in partnership with Urban Sketchers Portugal Group, which enters its 9th edition in 2022.

Although her training is linked to the world of conservation and restoration and built heritage management, she has devoted much of her recent activity to cultural dissemination, expansion of the heritage concept, intercultural approximation, creation of networks with communities and with the general public, and interaction with contemporary art.

She has participated in debates and has published scientific articles on vernacular architecture, heritage in general, and on cultural dissemination.
