Promotora de la startup The Concerned Collector. Mercedes Vidal-Abarca (Vitoria, Spain) After living in different countries since she was 18 years old, she arrived in Portugal in 2008 where she studied drawing, painting, printmaking and ceramics at Sociedade das Belas Artes, ARco and MArt. She considers herself more an art student than an artist. The idea of creating a cultural association for creativity and artistic research in a interdisciplinary environment came in 2014 and started functioning in 2015 under her direction. The relationship between the art projects and the council and the population of Arraiolos have been her priority and have been increasing intimately.
