Founded in 2000 in Lisbon by Filipe Faria, Arte das Musas creates and implements original projects in the areas of music, sound art, documentary film, visual art, photography and cultural programming. It draws upon the nature of Filipe Faria's creations, both working individually and in collectives.
In 2012 we chose to look at our projects – and at planet Earth – from the perspective of a rural, sustainable and inspiring world – Idanha-a-Nova (UNESCO Creative City of Music). This land has come to serve as our principal source of inspiration and has become the physical and spiritual home of Arte das Musas, our point of departure for facing all challenges.
Examples of our projects include the Fora do Lugar Festival, Terras sem Sombra Festival (2013–2010), Sete Lágrimas ECMC, Noa Noa, Todas as noutes passadas, Como dormirão meus olhos? etc…, touring Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Sweden, Bulgaria, Malta, China, Belgium, Norway, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Japan, and was presented in partner institutions like the Centro Cultural de Belém, Fábrica das Artes\CCB, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Fundación Juan March, Macao Internacional Music Festival, Stockholm Early Music Festival, Festival Baroque de Sablé, Companhia de Dança de Almada, Opera de Lille, Gent Festival van Vaanderen, Musiekcentrum De Bijloke, Flemish Opera, Bozar Bruxelles, Stavanger Konzerthus, and others. Programmes have included projects and artists such as Nino Laisné, Valter Vinagre, Danças Ocultas, Jordi Savall, Les Fin’Amoureuses, Arianna Savall, Petter Udland Johansen, Marco Beasley, Pedro Caldeira Cabral, Eduardo Salavisa, Galandum Galundaina, Mayra Andrade, António Zambujo, Kepa Junkera and Pino De Vittorio.
