Bensaude Group collaborates with Walk&Talk - Azores Arts Festival
The 10th edition of Walk&Talk - Azores Arts Festival, taking place from 15 to 24 July on the island of São Miguel, presents 22 new projects that draw up a program which allows different paths and ways to participate and experience the festival, and that ends with a visual marathon between Sete Cidades and Relva.

Following the motto Where we go it shall be, the festival takes place through several public and cultural spaces on the island: Walk&Talk 10 adds 4 new pieces to the public art circuit (Abbas Akhavan, Luísa Salvador, João Pedro Vale & Nuno Alexandre Ferreira and Tropa Macaca) and 9 exhibitions will inaugurate on the opening weekend (Alex Farrar, Alice dos Reis, Catarina Miranda, Danny Bracken, Joana Franco, Mané Pacheco, Margarida Fragueiro, Nadia Belerique, and Sofia Caetano), occupying spaces such as Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Center, Museu Carlos Machado, Galeria Fonseca Macedo, Instituto Cultural de Ponta Delgada, or espaço vaga - the new headquarters of the association Anda&Fala, which is the meeting point of the festival. Six shows and performances will also be premiered, bringing dance, music, and video back on stage (Catarina Miranda, Flávio Rodrigues, Gustavo Círiaco, Lucy Railton & Pedro Maia and Luís Senra), and 1 film (Diogo Lima).

The projects result from Walk&Talk commissions and artistic residencies developed in the Azores between 2018 and 2021; and include four presentations of W&T Young Creators, the call to artists/creators born or resident in the Azores, which rewards the selected authors with a grant for creation, artistic residency, and presence at the festival.

Bensaude Group is proud to collaborate in this initiative since its beginning, 10 years ago, through its Tourism, Services, Maritime and Logistics and Distribution areas, thus continuing its strong tradition in supporting culture.
