“MIMO, a minha cidade”

“MIMO, a minha cidade”

Amarante 25 Jul to 30 Sep 2019
09:00 - 23:59
As a result of an ideas contest held last June, the 2019 edition of the “MIMO, my city” action began, under which, under the theme “Songs of the World”, three artists from Amarante created an illustrated artistic script involving 54 shop windows in the city's commercial establishments.
The purpose of the action is to increase the attractiveness of the shops in the historic center, in the space delimited by ARU - Urban Rehabilitation area, taking advantage not only of the audiences generated by the MIMO Festival (70 thousand people in 2018), but also of tourists and visitors. that, in the summer months, head for Amarante.

The choice of “Songs of the World” as a motto for the work of the selected artists goes back to MIMO, but also to the fact that Amarante is “Creative City of Music”, so classified by UNESCO since 2017. The challenge for artists is the in their productions, addressing the origin / history of musical styles from various continents.
As a novelty for this 3rd edition of “Mimo, my city”, QR codes will be used to make the three-moment script more dynamic and interactive. Named "Search, Listen and Discover Music", the joint script offers the audience the opportunity to interact with the shop windows.
