Walk&Talk Festival (São Miguel, Azores) > Open Call for Journalists

Each year the Festival invites Portuguese and foreign journalists to visit and cover Walk&Talk - Arts Festival, in the Azores. Some of them have visited us several times. Most of them would like to come back.

The organisers are aware of the limitations that cultural journalists and art critics presently face, regarding publishing opportunities and the existing limited space for covering arts themes in the media and especially in gaining the mobility needed to cover art projects and events which take place all around the world. We also believe that press professionals are active players in the contemporary art scene and that their work is crucial, not only as information for the public, but because it favors the knowledge and comprehension towards the arts, the awareness and sustainability of art practices, artists, agents and projects. 

These are the reasons why Walk&Talk launches this Open Call for cultural journalists and art critics.

Can apply: Portuguese or foreign cultural journalists, arts writers and critics, working for online or offline magazines, newspapers, radio, television or other types of media.
