Orquestra Sem Fronteiras | Orchestra Without Borders

Orquestra Sem Fronteiras (Orchestra Without Borders) exists to support young musicians and reduce social and cultural inequalities through music.

Our mission is to reduce social and cultural inequalities through music.

Our vision is a fairer society where culture is accessible to everyone, regardless of their geographic location.

Our work

OSF supports young musicians’ talent in inland Portugal and Spain. We do this by fighting the abandonment of music teaching and rewarding academic excellence through concerts, music education, and grant giving.

We also exist to spread access to culture, and for this we work across dozens of localities in the countryside, offering free concerts, open rehearsals, and pedagogy & introduction to music for local people.

We champion values of cooperation and international integration, combining Portuguese and Spanish musicians side by side.

THE CHOICES OF

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
