Westway LAB Festival is a collaborative platform, a living and organic laboratory, of experimentation and stimulus to creativity whose goal is to bring together, in the same city, acclaimed and emerging, international and national, innovative and purists artists for two weeks. Two weeks of music creation, video, urban interventions and thought played out through the development of activities such as Artistic Residencies, Talks, Showcases, PRO Conferences and Concerts.
Westway LAB Festival is the first and only PRO event in Portugal linked to the European Talent Exchange Program (ETEP), bringing together referenced names in the national and international panorama in an innovative format that aims to approach, around the artistic creation, professionals of the area and the public. Recently, Westway LAB, along with 7 other European partners, has created a new network of cooperation to enhance the discovery of artists and the development of the music industry: INES – Innovation Network of European Showcases.
The festival is organized by A Oficina, entity responsible for the management and programming of various cultural facilities in Guimarães.
