For this 8th edition of Westway LAB, the Westway PRO Conference sets the scene for the Iberian Focus that will be the theme of Westway LAB’s 2022 edition. Looking ahead to a way forward after the harm that the pandemic has wrought on the music eco-system, and live music in particular, Westway LAB that cross-border performances must restart gradually, close to home.

And so, now more than ever, it is important for Portugal and the several regions that make up the rest of the Iberian peninsula, come together in a more useful, meaningful way, pondering Iberian actions such as co-creation, developing new works and projects together, and creating a sustainable, diverse and more equal environment for artist exchanges between all Iberian regions.


We thus approach this 8th edition from April 7th-10th in Guimarães - our 2nd hybrid edition - as a preparation, an anticipation and in anticipation of better and more fruitful times to come. Our hugely successful 2020 hybrid experience reached more people digitally than Westway LAB has ever brought together physically since its start in 2014. And so it is with the usual high degree of positivity, creativity and enthusiasm that we present the future-facing Westway PRO 2021 program.
