After a first edition, in August last year, which offered 47 works of art to Figueiró dos Vinhos, Fazunchar returned to that village between 15 and 23 August, extending to the parishes of Aguda, Arega and Campelo.
Last year, through the streets of Figueiró dos Vinhos, in the district of Leiria, murals were created that were inspired by the naturalist painter José Malhoa and his contemporaries, who transformed that village into a “hot spot” of Portuguese art between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
This year, there is no theme, but the objectives of the festival remain the same.
The program of the 2nd edition includes mural painting, artistic residencies, installation, concerts, films, community actions, guided tours and workshops, all of which are free of charge.
The guest list for this edition includes Surma, who will be in artistic residency, British artist Helen Bur and Portuguese Tamara Alves, Adamastor and Mantraste.
The complete program, which will be announced shortly, will also include a digital aspect.
The Fazunchar festival (the name comes from the dialect of local textile traders, and means “to do”) is promoted by the Municipality of Figueiró dos Vinhos.
