“We continue to invite people to get to know the Algarve, its heritage and its history in these outdoor initiatives throughout the region”, underlined to Lusa the cultural coordinator of the project, Pedro Bartilloti. The coordinator of the initiative highlighted that the programming is “diversified and free” taking place in “monuments, historical sites and in unconventional places”, being many promoted by local artists. On the 23rd, Andreia Arrais will host the workshop “Color Techniques – Use of Colored Pencils ”

On 19 August, Forte do Beliche, in Sagres, presents the plastic arts exhibition “Criações do Vento”, which includes works by eight artists residing in Vila do Bispo and is inspired by the emotional relationship that “unites its creators with this territory and its people”. On the 21st, the multidisciplinary project “Eis o Algarve” - a fusion of music, dance and multimedia - sails to the island of Culatra (Faro) to pay homage to the region's past, in a show where the accordion is the central point.
