Walk&Talk Azores 2016-the International Festival of Public Art runs until July 30th, and it will fill walls, streets and several cultural spaces in the island of Sao Miguel. The program will show several artistic art works by creative artists.
The sixth edition of the Walk&Talk Azores Arts Festival continues to offer a program of activities with talks, screenings, guided tours, concerts and performances. On the streets, squares and other spaces of the island of São Miguel, the new Public Art Circuit projects are taking shape and between the Walk&Talk Gallery, the Micaelense Typography and the Lagoa Ceramic Factory, artists, designers and craftsmen are working together in Artistic Residencies.
Walk &Talk Festival was created in 2011 by the Cultural Interpretation Association Anda & Fala. Since then it has contributed to display the Azores in the international artistic route thanks to the positive impact it had on national and foreign creators that have participated in the three previous editions of the Festival. A kind of audience that normally wouldn’t see the Azores as a main destination and end up discovering the naturally exotic and authentic context of the island and its people. The artistic residencies stimulate with their participatory model to sharing and co creation, making the invited guests excellent ambassadors for the Festival.
