She was the director of the movie magazine “The Big Illusion/A Grande Ilusão”, chairperson and founder of the association “The Children of Lumière/Os Filhos de Lumière”, program coordinator of the permanent cycle “The Pleasure of Film/O Sabor do Cinema” at the Serralves Museum.

She was a member of the collective that, among other activities, published the journal PREC (Ongoing Revolutionary Process), and was also a member of the collective that produced the Half-past Nine/Nove e Meia project –  a street cine-club whereby in partnership with  residents of her street, she programmed and encouraged  cinema in the street.

She cofounded the Mário Dionísio Centre Casa da Achada. With Ana Deus, she formed the musical group Três Tristes Tigres/Three Sad Tigers. She worked in other bands too, among them were: Osso Vaidoso/Cocky Bone and the Clã/Clan.

She has carried out countless experiments around the word, both spoken and sung. For over a decade now, she has organised LEITURA FURIOSA/FURIOUS READING Porto, which are encounters between writers and people angry about reading.

She has held workshops on writing and film initiation. She has produced a vast body of video-graphic work in the form of «Cadernos/Notebooks», which have already appeared in several retrospectives. In recent years, her activity as screenwriter and dramaturg has intensified and broadened  to include the area of Animated film.

She aspires to be wherever there is a just cause to be fought. She has lived and worked with Saguenail since 1975. Hélastre is the designation of the work they do in common.
