Rádio e Televisão de Portugal (RTP), founded in 1935, is the public service broadcasting organisation of Portugal. RTP journalist Rita Fernandes has made a piece on the MyMachine House in Obidos that opened in November 2022.
Enchanting Óbidos is one of Portugal’s most beautiful destinations and one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval villages or walled towns. It is known as one of the seven wonders of Portugal and attracts 2 million visitors a year. In addition, Óbidos is known in Portugal as an innovation hub in different fields, and it hosts several festivals each year, including Folio, the largest literature festival in Portugal.
Óbidos also hosts the headquarters of MyMachine Portugal. Ana-Sofia Godinho and her team started MyMachine Portugal in Óbidos in collaboration with the Óbidos Technology Park (Miguel Silvestre) many years ago. Since then, they have grown MyMachine in the country, with schools participating from the North (Vila Nova de Famalicão), Center, and South (Campo Maior) of Portugal.
The MyMachine House is a permanent creativity space reaching out to local stakeholders and the millions of visitors in Óbidos annually. The MyMachine House intends to be a multidisciplinary and transversal nucleus, guaranteeing an educational and training approach, based on the three phases of the methodology: Idea, Design and Construction.
