Walk&Talk Festival: Azores 2013


The Walk&Talk Azores Festival on the island of São Miguel is a public art programme of interventions where artists present their work in a group exhibition, concerts, performances, workshops, and other thematic encounters including the Public Art Museum of São Miguel, where a growing circuit of circa 62 public art interventions are visible 365 days a year. From 12-27 July 2013, the multidimensional and participative third edition of Walk&Talk involved over 50 artists from visual arts to performing arts and architecture, including mural painting, installation, sculpture, dance, music, and video creations. The Walk &Talk Festival creators from multiple geographies, quadrants and disciplines created the work in collaboration with the local nature, culture and community turning the island of São Miguel into an open-air contemporary art museum. Founded in 2011 by local artists Diana Sousa and Jesse James the Walk&Talk festival aims to promote and stimulate contemporary artistic expression to provide artists with a “residency model that encourages creation in permanent dialogue with public space and new ways of thinking, interpretation and renewed visions within the Azorean population.”
