Descrição do evento

Descrição

Westway Lab Festival is a collaborative platform, a living and organic laboratory of experimentation and stimulus for creativity whose goal is to bring together, in the same city, acclaimed and emerging, international and national, innovative and purist artists for two weeks. Two weeks of music creation, video, urban interventions and thoughts played out through the development of activities such as Artistic Residencies, Talks, Showcases, PRO Conferences and Concerts.

Westway Lab is Portugal's first showcase festival, featuring a PRO conference and artistic residencies yielding unique performances. The 4-day festival takes place in Guimarães, the cradle city of Portugal, in the amazing Vila Flor Cultural Centre (CCVF) as well as other venues. Westway Lab, the first PRO music event in Portugal to join the ETEP network (European Talent Exchange Programme) actively promotes new Portuguese music abroad, bringing together referenced names in the national and international panorama in an innovative format that aims to approach, around the artistic creation, professionals of the area and the public.

After affirming its pro-active stance in the internationalization of Portuguese new music, through the PRO conferences, the international artistic residencies and showcase concerts, Westway Lab will also welcome its new European partners from the INES project: Innovation Network of European Showcases.

A third conference track, the WHY Portugal Event, focuses on the capacity building necessary for the internationalization of new Portuguese music - this year Westway LAB welcomes the second edition of the WHY Portugal Event.

The festival was co-founded by AMAEI, the Portuguese Independent Music Trade Association; and is organized by the cooperative “A Oficina”, the entity responsible for the management and programming of various cultural facilities in Guimarães.
