For the second time in Oeiras, the word. In all forms, defying limitations or disciplines, taking a walk in conversations, seducing in freedom, proclaiming actions and solutions, from utopia to everyday life. For the second time, then, Oeiras hosts the MAP festival – Mostra de Artes da Palavra.
In essence, the MAP remains the same: a multidisciplinary and transversal festival that explores the word and its relationship with other disciplines as the central theme and driving force of the entire event. But thanks to the good reception it received in the first edition, the MAP grew. This year there will be a guest country, a brother in language and humanity: Brazil. The immense literary and linguistic wealth of this country will be the primary source of multiple events – from exhibitions to shows – that will span the entire duration of this edition of the festival.
The word, when it is born, is to be shared. Once again, the MAP will bet on this passing of the word through several open calls that will recall the participatory and community character that this festival bets on and defends.
The 2022 edition of MAP brings other news: the existence of curatorships given to writers, poets and artists, the conference “Where can we live if not in the days” and four masterclasses given by the festival to names such as Richard Zenith, Irene Flunser Pimentel, among others. others.
Once again part of Oeiras’ candidacy for European capital of culture in 2027 (Oeiras 27), this year’s edition of the Mostra de Artes da Palavra festival will unite us again through the magic of what is at the beginning and end of all things: the word.
