lançamento do livro infantil "Luz dentro de nós" - 2022.05.28
28-05-2022
A Fundação Rui Cunha acolhe, sábado, dia 28 de Maio de 2022, às 11h30, o lançamento do livro infantil Luz dentro de nós, da autoria de Delora Sinha e Gabriel.
Luz dentro de nós conta uma história de luzes que falam e de quatro amigos que se encontram num momento mágico do calendário chinês, num lugar onde o tempo para e onde aproveitam para conversar e também discordar, realçando os diferentes traços de personalidade, vivência, opiniões e atitudes, comprovando que cada um de nós tem uma luz dentro de si.
Através deste livro, o leitor poderá conhecer e entender a existência das diferentes emoções, reconhecendo a importância de cada ser existente no mundo, valorizando e respeitando tudo o que está à sua volta.

Missão:
O desenvolvimento de competências emocionais, particularmente do conhecimento emocional, tem vindo a ser considerado uma importante aquisição para a saúde e bem-estar e para a adaptação social e escolar.
Particularmente, o desenvolvimento que ocorre na idade pré-escolar, tendo em conta a transição e adaptação ao Jardim-de-infância, exige competências que permitam às crianças corresponder às novas exigências afectivas, sociais e cognitivas, a novas regras e limites e fundamentalmente, a iniciar as relações entre pares com toda a sua complexidade entre a individualidade e o grupo.
Acreditamos que o conhecimento sobre diferentes tipos de emoções e o autoconhecimento emocional são muito importantes para o crescimento da criança.

Edição Trilingue
Macau tem vindo a promover de forma activa e empenhada o ensino bilingue das línguas chinesa e portuguesa, contribuindo, assim, para a fusão destas duas diferentes culturas. Aproveitando esse facto, e tendo como objectivo o apoio ao desenvolvimento das crianças que têm contacto com a língua portuguesa, de famílias de matriz chinesa, a introdução ao conhecimento destes dois idiomas assume um papel fundamental no acompanhamento dos pais ao crescimento e processo de aprendizagem dos seus filhos.
Já o Patuá macaense, também chamado Crioulo macaense, é um idioma de origem portuguesa em vias de extinção (classificado pelo UNESCO), sendo apenas falado por um pequeno número dos macaenses que vivem em Macau ou no estrangeiro, na sua maioria já com uma idade avançada, razão pela qual, é de enorme importância contribuir para a sua preservação e promoção no seio das futuras gerações.

Autores:
Teresinha Tcheong Gabriel é fundadora da LEKKA, Centro de Explicações e de Educação e autora do livro lúdico Eu e… Eu sou… Eu sei…, dedicado à prática do português. Exerceu, igualmente, funções de monitora de actividades extracurriculares (Origami) no Jardim de Infância D. José da Costa Nunes.
Bilingue (em chinês e português), Teresinha Tcheong Gabriel é licenciada em Ciências Farmacêuticas pela Universidade de Lisboa, tendo sido, durante vários anos, farmacêutica e directora técnica em farmácias comunitárias e num hospital de dia.
Gabriel, engenheiro de profissão, desde muito cedo manifestou profundo interesse pela música e pela cultura macaense, especialmente o patuá. É ele quem escreve as letras das suas músicas originais tanto em português como em patuá. Neste seu último projecto, decidiu fazer algo diferente: porque não escrever um livro para crianças em três línguas?
Com uma tese de mestrado “Sketching a profile of Macanese managers”, Gabriel é, ainda, co-autor da exposição de fotografias “Fly.Time.Space” - um tema que revela a sua paixão pela cultura local.

Luz dentro de nós, será apresentado a todo o público interessado, este sábado, 28 de maio, pelas 11h30 da manhã, na Fundação Rui Cunha.
Para além da presença dos autores, contaremos, ainda, com a participação do psicoterapeuta Elvo Sou, bem como de Antonio Monteiro, Presidente da Associação de Jovens Macaenses.
A sessão será realizada em português e cantonês com interpretação consecutiva.
Traga o seu filho e venha celebrar connosco o Dia Internacional da Criança!

Gastronomy & Cinema . “Cook Up a Storm” (2017) – 2022.05.17
17-05-2022
The Rui Cunha Foundation presents on Tuesday, May 17 at 6:30pm, the third of a series of six films dedicated to the theme of Gastronomy and Cinema, entitled “Cook Up a Storm”, from 2017, signed by Hong Kong director Raymond Yip Wai-Man (葉偉民). This session will not have a previous presentation.
The film is a comedy-drama starring Hong Kong star Nicholas Tse and South Korean pop icon Yong Hwa Jung. The actors bring to life two talented chefs: one who is famous for his Cantonese street food and the other a renowned Michelin Star Chef, who was trained in France. Coincidentally, both become finalists in an important cooking contest, turned into a real battleground between the two competitors.
Despite the differences, the active rivalry is completely altered when, upon discovering a common enemy, they decide to combine all their talents, opening space for an understanding that will result in a fusion between East and West.
“Cook Up a Storm” is the film version of the well-known reality show “Chef Nic”, having been partially filmed at the Studio City Hotel, at Macau City of Dreams, and the iconic Golden Reel, the tallest Ferris wheel in Asia.
During filming, the protagonists also had the opportunity to be inspired by some of the chefs of local Michelin restaurants, namely Chef Tam Kwok Fung, Director of Culinary Operations at Studio City, and Chef Guillaume Galliot, Chef de Cuisine at Tasting Room Restaurant., all part of the integrated resort of City of Dreams, which ended up being the ideal setting for the making of this movie.

The film is spoken in Cantonese, with English subtitles.
Not suitable for children under 13 (Group B).
Admission is free, but subject to limited seating.

“Portuguese Letters: A Woman’s Love” – 2022.05.05
05-05-2022
The Rui Cunha Foundation will co-organize on Thursday, May 5th at 6:30pm, at the FRC Gallery venue, a Conference celebrating the World Day of the Portuguese Language, under the theme “Portuguese Letters: A Woman’s Love”, in partnership with the Macau Bookworms Association, IPOR-Instituto Português do Oriente, Orient Foundation and the Consulate General of Portugal in Macau and Hong Kong.
The “Portuguese Letters” date from 1664 and were attributed to Mariana Alcoforado, a nun from the Convent of Beja, who wrote them to De Chamilly, a French soldier who fought for Portugal in the War of Restoration.
It is a document of exacerbated romanticism, the result of an absolute passion and dedication, which deserved comments from writers such as Stendhal and Rousseau. Perhaps this is why it has become a masterpiece of universal literature and was consecrated as a testimony of profound love. Despite its classicism, it has aroused great interest in the field of arts: theatre, cinema and opera.
In order to expose this great literary work, the following speakers were invited to participate in the session: Victor Correia (Lisbon, via zoom) with the theme "As Cartas Portuguesas – To love in Portuguese and in the feminine"; Leonor Diaz de Seabra (in person at FRC) with "Mariana Alcoforado and her time"; Luciana Barboza (Brazil, via zoom) with "Portuguese letters at play – Emotion on stage"; Myriam Cyr (Canada, via zoom) with "Letters of a Portuguese Nun – Uncovering the Mystery behind a 17th Century Forbidden Love"; João Guilherme Ripper (Brazil, via zoom) with "Compositional procedures in the opera ‘Cartas Portuguesas’"; Shee Va (in person at FRC) with "Letter to a soul mate"; and Lawrence Lei (in person at FRC) with "A perfumed dream".

The session will be held in Portuguese, with simultaneous interpretation into Cantonese.
Admission is free.

The Rui Cunha Foundation and the Macau Portuguese School (EPM) present on Friday, April 29 at 3:00pm, one of their most emblematic projects: the program Let’s Get Justice – VIII Edition, a high-school mock court trial dedicated in 2022 to the theme of “Corruption”.
On the occasion of FRC’s 10th Anniversary, and after two years of interregnum, this event is once again included in the April Celebrations plan, with the unconditional support of EPM since the first session.
The CRED-DM – Center for Reflection, Study and Dissemination of Macau Law of the Foundation aims, through this annual initiative, to introduce young high-school students to the essential foundations of Law and Justice, as well as to help them understand the Macaos legal system.
The students, previously selected by EPM, were entrusted with a mock case to solve, through the construction of character roles, submitted evidence and the whole scenario of a real trial.
The Hearing and Judgment Session will be reproduced live by the young participants at the FRC Gallery, under the essential guidance of distinguished Magistrate, Dr. Carlos Carvalho.
The event is public, with free admission, and will be broadcast live via FRC Facebook. The participants shall speak in Portuguese and Cantonese.

“Convergence and Integration of Legal Systems in Hengqin (…)” – 2022.04.28
28-04-2022
The Rui Cunha Foundation presents on Thursday, April 28 at 6:30pm, the conference “Convergence and Integration of Legal Systems in Hengqin Deep Cooperation Zone”, as part of a new cycle dedicated to this important area of cooperation with Macau. The first session will be attended by Ms. Lio Xiaohong, Senior Partner at Dentons, a law firm in Hengqin. Moderating the conversation will be Mr. Zhao Lu, Senior Partner at C&C Lawyers, in Macau.

The Greater Bay Area of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau (GBA) is one of the most strategic projects for the future development of the Peoples Republic of China, which alone accounts for 12% of Chinas gross domestic product. This is a project that aims to attract talent, companies and investment from other regions of China, but also from abroad, a fundamental aspect to cement the regions status as a leader in innovation.

Macau has a fundamental role in the project, a role that is associated not only with its profile and status as an international tourism center, but above all as a platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries.

In this context, the newly created Deep Cooperation Zone between Guangdong and Macau in Hengqin signals a qualitative leap of the MSARs role in the construction process of the Greater Bay. With a market of more than 100 million people and physical space to grow (Hengqin), this is a fantastic opportunity for Macau to expand and consolidate in the regional arena, catapulting the territory towards the much-desired economic diversification.

Given the potential for business and investments, it is important to understand which legal system is best suited to accomplish those objectives. Will Macau Law expand to HengQin? Or will the Chinese Law remain in force?

As HengQin is part of a project to integrate the Macau Special Administrative Region into the Greater Bay Area, it will be interesting to acknowledge the points of convergence in both legal systems. This is the motto for the series of thematic conferences that Rui Cunha Foundation aims to organize periodically, in order to broaden the reflection and to contribute for the construction of the future legal system in HengQin.

The conference will be held in Mandarin, with simultaneous interpretation into Portuguese and Cantonese.
Admission is free, subject to room capacity.

“Rodrigo Leal de Carvalho: The Man and the Literary Work” – 2022.04.27
27-04-2022
The Rui Cunha Foundation presents on Wednesday, April 27 at 6:30pm, the conference “Rodrigo Leal de Carvalho: The Man and the Literary Work”, in partnership with the Macau Bookworms Association. The event will feature guest speakers Miguel de Senna Fernandes, Rogério Beltrão Coelho and Dora Gago, with the moderation in charge of Shee Va.

During the 10th Anniversary Celebrations month, we highlight the Foundation’s mission of contributing to the development of the Territorys legal and cultural identity, by focusing on this illustrious man of Macau’s law and culture, who lived and worked here for about four decades, although not continuously.

Rodrigo Leal de Carvalho first served as a Public Prosecutors Office, followed by a second stay as a Judge. He returned to Macau for the third time as Public Prosecutor, later with the designation of Deputy General Prosecutor. In 1996 he was appointed President of the Court of Auditors, a position he held until the Macau Government handover to the Peoples Republic of China, before returning to Portugal in 1999.

Regarding other personal creative ambitions, Rodrigo Leal de Carvalho only made his literary debut in the 1990s, having been, since then, quite productive in his literary career. With the release of his first novel, entitled “Requiem por Irina Ostrakoff” (1993), he has soon demonstrated his potential as a writer. Awarded with the Camilo Pessanha Prize 1993, attributed by the Orient Portuguese Institute (IPOR), he would have this work also published in Chinese, in 1999.

The book “Os Construtores do Império” was published in 1994, shortly followed by two new novels in 1996: “A IV Cruzada”, in which the author partly assumes himself as the protagonist, and “Ao Serviço de Sua Majestade”. In 1999 he published “O Senhor Conde e as Suas Três Mulheres”. With fine irony and delicacy, Rodrigo Leal de Carvalho revealed to be an excellent writer of Macau memories and the universe of Portuguese public service overseas, from the 1950s and 1960s, recreating environments and experiences witnessed by himself, and properly framed in the panorama of the 20th century world. His work came to the attention of investigators such as David Brookshow and Lee Shuk Yee.

This session will be held in Portuguese, without interpretation.

Admission is free, subject to room capacity.

Notebook of Stories . “The Harmony in Counterpointing” – 2022.04.26
26-04-2022
The Rui Cunha Foundation presents on Tuesday, April 26 at 6:30pm, the conference "The Harmony in Counterpointing", in partnership with the Macau Bookworm’s Association, the Macao Calligraphers Association and the Flora Garden Poetry Friends Association.
The event will be conducted by Master Kou Tak Kuong, in Cantonese, with consecutive Portuguese interpretation by Shee Va.
During the 10th Anniversary Celebrations month, where the Foundation’s mission to contribute for the development of Macaos cultural identity has been highly praised, nothing is more appropriate than to highlight the value and symbolism of Chinese couplets, present in multiple buildings in the city.
With a millenary existence, this element of Chinese literature has different categories and functions. In a simple way, these are two opposing verses, but not contradictory. On the contrary, they complement each other to establish the harmony so aspired by Humanity.
The Chinese couplet is, therefore, a tangible object of Chinese culture, whose content is intangible due to the ideas and values it contains. Its importance in Chinese daily life and culture must, therefore, be understood by everyone and, in particular, by the expatriate community residing in Macau.
Master Kou Tak Kong will seek to clarify these details, explaining the content and rules used in the creation of the couplets, for a better understanding of this important manifestation of oriental culture.

Admission is free, subject to room capacity.

Conversas Ilustradas com Música - 2022.04.21
21-04-2022
A Fundação Rui Cunha apresenta no próximo dia 21 de Abril de 2022, Quinta-feira, às 18h30, mais uma sessão de Conversas Ilustradas com Música, desta feita sob o tema da Amizade.

No mês em que a Fundação assinala o seu 10º aniversário, nada mais apropriado que o celebrar através de um dos sentimentos mais nobres e puros, sempre motivo de júbilo e felicidade. Se existem no mundo forças capazes de mover os homens positivamente, a amizade é, sem dúvida, uma delas.

Já Platão dizia que a amizade é uma predisposição recíproca que torna dois seres igualmente ciosos da felicidade um do outro.

Conscientes que a celebração de um aniversário constitui por si só um acto de felicidade que pode e deve ser partilhado, Shee Va e José Carlos Pereira propõem assinalar o 10º aniversário da Fundaçao Rui Cunha sob o tema do afecto, carinho, estima e dedicação, sentimentos alicerçados nos colaboradores desta instituição a qual tem no desenvolvimento sociocultural de Macau e das suas Gentes, uma das bandeiras fundamentais.

Porque a amizade se torna mais florescente através das notas musicais que todos estamos habituados a ouvir nas Conversas Ilustradas com Musica, seleccionámos para esta sessão a amizade entre dois compositores, Benjamin Britten e Dmitri Shostakovich que, pese embora separados pela língua e pela Cortina de Ferro em tempos de Guerra Fria, sempre se entenderam através da arte e da profunda admiração que nutriam pela música um do outro.

Britten dedicou a Shostakovich a sua ópera “O filho prodigo”, tendo este retribuído com a XIV Sinfonia.

A postura moral de ambos perante a música, os homens e a sociedade foi o que mais os uniu. Ninguém deverá ser privado de ter consciência, porque perde-la é perder tudo.

Ambos foram, verdadeiros, alicerces na construção da música do Seculo XX, o que levou o maestro britânico Jan Latham-Koening a fundar a Britten-Shostakovich Festival Orchestra, a qual agrega jovens músicos oriundos dos Conservatórios dos dois países de origem dos compositores.

Estas e muitas outras histórias serão reveladas em mais uma sessão de Conversas Ilustradas com Música, Quinta-feira, 21 de Abril, às 18h30, na Fundação Rui Cunha, a qual não poderá perder.

Contamos com todos na celebração destes 10 anos da Fundação.

Este evento será realizado em língua portuguesa.

Entrada livre.
