Walk&Talk is a non-profit association dedicated to the promotion and integration of audiences and spaces through art. Sharing many parallels with Fogo Island Arts and the Shorefast Foundation, Walk&Talk was established in 2011 with the vision of stimulating the Azores through cultural investment, catalyzing contemporary artistic expressions while assuming the peripheral and insular context as an opportunity of creation and exhibition.
