The 9th Ed. of ImigrArte Festival holds the participation of 250 artists, 35 immigrant associations representing more than 25 nationalities. Support our Festival!

The ImigrArte Festival was born in 2007, inside the association Solidariedade Imigrante a non-profit organisation of public utility, based in Lisbon, Portugal.

With Festival ImigrArte, we seek to highlight the social and the cultural potential of the immigrants by promoting dialogs between the various foreign communities as well between Portuguese citizens and foreign citizens.

With this initiative we build bridges between the various foreign communities; enhance the initiative of the descendants and promote the art and culture produced by immigrants and their descendants. In the organization of the festival, done in partnership with numerous immigrant associations, the artists and the activists are the immigrants themselves and they are the ones who make the decisions, work out the program and generate the entire event.

Organized entirely by volunteers, this event is considered today as an important social and cultural reference of Lisbon. It involves the voluntary participation of 250 artists from more than 25 different countries and it is divided into areas such as music, dance, theatre, cinema, visual arts, photography, literature and crafts.

The program also contains the presence of 30 immigrant associations, various initiatives, international gastronomy, debates, conferences and workshops. About 26 shows and 16 parallel activities are presented and the festival reaches around 3500 visitors.

The entrance is free for all activities and shows.

The ImigrArte has relied on logistical support and partnerships with the Museu do Oriente Foundation, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Lisbon City Council, the Santa Casa da Misericordia of Lisboa, EGEAC, RTP 2, SIC, RTPÁfrica, TVGlobo, RDPÁfrica, Antena 1, the newspaper Slovo, the magazine Brasileirinho and several online sites and agendas.

This year, the 9th edition of the festival takes place on November 14h and 15th at the Ateneu Comercial de Lisboa. The organization team is trying, trough the crowdfunding, to raise the funds needed to help to pay for the rental of the local, for the rental of sound equipment and the lights and for the payment of the technicians. These expenses represent 40% of the festival's budget. The remaining 60% are covered by Solidariedade Imigrante. The fundraising of this campaign will also help us by achieving better conditions for all participants.
