Between July 12 and 27, São Miguel will host the third edition of the Walk & Talk Festival. The festival promises to fill the Island with colorful street art.
This multi-dimensional and participative public art festival is considered one of the most important contemporary art events in the Azores. The festival plans to bring some of the world’s best street artists, who have already shown interest in visiting the Azores. “This interest is the result of the previous editions. We have already receive some requests from different artists that want to come to this year’s edition”, said Jesse James from Walk & Talk staff.
Ponta Delgada is once again the capital city of the Festival, which this year also includes Ribeira Grande. But also this year for the first time, Lagoa is going to host Walk & Talk, increasing the number of locations up to three. The 2013’s program will include public space art, exhibitions, workshops, music, performances and debates.
In the previous editions, Walk & Talk brought to the Azores more than 80 artists, designers and collectives, from nine countries and three continents. Cross and share multidisciplinary expressions of art with space, culture and local communities is one of the main goals of this annual festival.
