Mais Imaginarius: Open Call for artist in Portugal

Mais Imaginarius is a section that aims to give space to emerging artists willing to show their work, through a competition for artistic creations specific for the public place.

The competition opens the challenge for artists to present proposals that address the public space in its most diverse perceptions, testing formats and models, towards the construction of plural identities. In a dialogue between contemporary artistic creation and public space, it seeks experimentation, exploring new connections between different languages and cultural/natural heritage.

In this edition, Mais Imaginarius will select up to 20 projects, which will be in competition, presenting themselves during the festival, between May 24th and 26th, 2024
