Publication of a new Tourist and Cultural Guide of Olhão, elaborated by the Association for the Defence of the Cultural and Environmental Heritage of Olhão (APOS)
Olhão is a land with strong cultural, historical and architectural singularities that are currently being rediscovered, but which still lack proper disclosure.
In the History of bilingual Tourist Guide publications in Olhão we only have a Guide in 1946 and an APOS Guide, published in 2010, also made by a group of citizens with the sponsorship of some private companies in exchange for advertising: Olhão Camping Park, Mútua de Seguros CRL, Pensão Bicuar, Moviflor, Sérgio Restaurant, Mime Design + Comunicação.
The APOS Guide, published in 2010, has already been run out. So we intend to publish an update in portuguese and english, in 2018, in order to explain what distinguishes Olhão, our History, our Architecture and our Legends.
This new guide may already be read here, but it needs funding for its paper publication, which is the purpose of the campaign.
It is a work of pure citizenship, with no intention of any monetary reward and, again, without any prior public support.
If in 2010, we were only about 10 volunteers who got funds through some publicity, this year of 2018 we intend to be hundreds of volunteers who through crowdfunding want to participate. And our association pledges to reward them in various ways, with the most honorable being putting their names (unless expressly requested anonymity) in the new 2018 Guide for that their civic intervention be remembered.
