Walk&Talk, the association's flagship project, is the annual Arts Festival of the Azores that happens yearly in July. Experimental and participative, Walk&Talk encourages the creation of new art objects in dialogue with the territory and the socio-cultural specificities of the Azorean region. The project focuses on the involvement of local communities, migrants and visitors, through the knowledge that is generated by expanded domains of the arts, intersecting art, dance, performance, theatre, architecture, design, cinema and music. Walk&Talk takes place in São Miguel Island since 2011, in 2016 expanded its dynamics to Terceira Island and during nine editions the project has hosted more than three hundred artists from multiple geographic and backgrounds. The festival shaped an Art Circuit consisting of more than 70 interventions, which are more or less ephemeral, are mapped and can be visited in urban and rural public spaces, on the two islands of the archipelago. Currently, the festival is organized around five artistic circuits - Island Circuit, Exhibition Circuit, Residency Circuit, Performative Circuit and Knowledge Circuit. Distinct circuits that are contaminated in a program dedicated to contemporary artistic creation and the presentation of installation and exhibition projects, performance, video, music, architecture and design.
