“WE BELIEVE ART SHOULD BE PART OF DAILY LIFE” -Montana Lisboa-
Entering the venue, I was not disappointed at all. Montana Lisboa turned out to be an absolute stunner. It wasn’t only a lunch place, not even only a graffiti shop, it turns out that a creative workspace and a gallery named “underdogs” also keep house in this old port house. The different paintings on the wall immediately caught my eye, but what was really standing out was the interactive IPad art-wall.
On a city-map on one of the big industrial walls, IPads were featuring the cities graffiti art by showing visuals of the pieces exactly on the geographical location of the artworks. Not only a piece of art on its own, but also a way to promote the safari’s one can sign up for to see the city’s hidden arty urban hotspots.
Montana Lisboa is an absolute hotspot itself in the heart of a vibrant city, a place where the innovative and creative scene of Lisbon comes together to meet, create and innovate. Moreover, this hub is the embodiment of how we should be open for cross-sectoral innovations, for togetherness and for the creative scene that is earning his place in a new and open-minded society.
