News: Ethno Portugal will happen in 2021 in reduced format! Calls about to open

Ethno Portugal, the 10-day artistic residency for young artists with a folk and traditional repertoire, will move forward this year after a break in 2020, due to the context we live around the world. This edition of the project will happen in a reduced format, giving priority to the music area. Dance will not be part of the format created for this year, but its return is promised for Ethno 2022. The artistic residency will take place in August and is part of the programming of the Festival Artes à Rua, in Évora. And the big news is that calls are about to open for musicians (between 18 and 30 years of age). Stay tuned for more details coming soon!

It's with a feeling of togetherness, and the hope of a transformation that we share with you that Ethno Portugal will not happen in 2020. Thank you all the musicians and dancers who sent their applications, videos, sound, images. We meet again next year!!  And.. we have some seeds in our pockets to plant, and we will come back to you with some surprises during 2020, keeping the flame alive and nourishing for 2021!
