World Imaginarius acts as a complement to artistic creation, focusing on training, mediation, promotion and accessibility as values and practices that are increasingly relevant to our region and our community.
They are the first faces to contact the Festival’s audience. Proactive, available and motivated for an enriching experience in a project of international prestige and size, 75 volunteers, aged 16 to 74, will play a decisive role in welcoming and guiding the public.
Approach a volunteer and/or follow their recommendations to:
· Ticket offices
· Entrance control
· Forwarding to the marked place
· Guidance at the exit of each show
Because gastronomy is an art in its own right, the Festival has once again challenged local restaurants to a crossroads of flavours, favouring Imaginarius menus based on seasonal endogenous products and revealing creativity in their preparation and dishing.
Adega Monhé, Lago, Taberna do Xisto and Terra Mãe are the four official Sabores Imaginarius restaurants that, between 9 and 12 September, will be the “ambassadors” of creative, urban and signature cuisine designed specifically for the Festival.
Plural, open and universal, the Imaginarius festival pursues its commitment to providing tools to support accessibility, guaranteeing conditions for the full enjoyment of the programme.
