→ What is the Get Set Festival?
Get Set Festival is a showcase, an event that aims to present the work of various authors - students and young professionals - presenting top contemporary and avant-garde creators and bringing their work to the general public. At the same time it promotes formation, interaction and exchange of knowledge between elements of different artistic fields.
A week a year, Oporto is invaded by creators from multiple nationalities in areas like architecture, design, video, art, fashion, new media, multimedia, music, interactivity, performance and installation.
→ Why is this year's theme called 'Decadent Beauty'?
After "high Tech - Low Cost" in 2010 and "Don't Panic, Be Organic" in 2011, Get Set Festival 2012 will have "Decadent Beauty" as it's theme. In this 3rd edition, more than a perspective or attitude, the Festival wants to promote action. Occupying declined buildings, after years of neglect, the Festival will assume the role of regeneration that is expected from the creative sector.
