Walk&Talk is an annual arts festival that stimulates creation in the specific cultural and geographic context of the Azores. From visual arts to performing arts, to architecture, design, music or video, more than a festival, Walk&Talk is a platform that encourages artistic creation in permanent dialogue with the territory, culture and the Azorean community. It operates in a co-production network with other programming structures, promotes an environment favourable to the exchange and co-creation of universal contents, generated from the Azores to be shared with the world.
Arbanassi Summer Music was founded in 2010 and has become a meeting place for international musicians and classical music-lovers to share a special programme of intimate evening concerts. The festival gathers a composer in residence and first class soloists from major European orchestras, who perform in the magical church of Archangels Gabriel and Michael, with its renowned acoustics and exceptional murals. Arbanassi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of great architectural interest and beauty.
