Walk&Talk Azores Festival 2014 Recap

The 4th edition of Walk&Talk Azores Festival took place this year between July 18th and August 3rd in the Island of São Miguel, gathering international artists from different fields, with a focus on murals, installation and performance, and offering opportunities of co-creation experience, workshops and more.

Indeed, as the organizers – Anda&Fala – Interpretação Cultural – describe their initiative, “here, the work is born from creative sharing, in full fusion with nature, culture and local community”. Using various techniques, many artists referred to the relationship and interaction between human and nature, highlighting certain elements – water, earth, air – and harmoniously integrating their interventions in the public space.
