The MURO [Wall] —Urban Art Festival will be held in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, from April 30 to May 15.
The festival will have its “epicentre” in neighbourhood Padre Cruz, although there will be interventions throughout the city.
The festival is organised by the Urban Art Gallery of Lisbon City Council in partnership with the Parish of Carnide.
“It is time to celebrate Lisbon’s urban art, through a large event, open to the entire population,” the organisers said.
Muro will involve national and international creators, related to a variety of fields, including “artistic intervention, discussion, community and voluntary work, education, publication, film, publications and even music, street entertainment, theater, puppetry, trial bike, paintball”.
“Cultural actors from the world of urban art” including Vhils, Lara Pebble Rodrigues, Pariz One, Pedro Soares Neves, Miguel Negretti and Ana Vilar Bravo were invited to be the festival curators.
The festival aims to involve not only the urban art community, but also the local population.
