The city council of Portimão launches a new innovative project to support local artists who have seen their activity affected by the pandemic. “The Stage is Yours” is a open call to all the musicians of the land, who will have at their disposal the stage of the Black Box of TEMPO – Municipal Theater of Portimão to present the
your show and your music.
Individual musicians residing in Portimão, or bands in which at least one of the members resides in this city, with a minimum of one year of proven artistic activity, and who have suffered a drop in income or who have suspended its activity due to the pandemic.
The application can be made between 1 to 15 January 2021, by sending an email to [email protected], with a brief curriculum vitae attesting that the artist / band fulfills the requested requirements, as well such as the complete address and TIN, and a small descriptive memory (up to 2,500 characters) of the musical project. A video can also be sent up to five minutes.
Selected artists will be given the opportunity to present their work in a show to be held at the Black Box of TEMPO, in the first quarter of 2021. The concerts, open to the public but subject to the limitation of the room, will later be broadcast on the municipality's social networks.
After the 'TEMPO OnLive' projects, which supported more than 15 artists in June and July, and “Portimão, Dá-te Palco!”, Which, in November and December, gave – literally – the stage to 20 artists and bands of different genres “O Palco é Teu” is the third project of direct support from the City Council of Portimão to local artists since the beginning of the pandemic.
For this initiative, the municipality provides financial support of 500 euros for each individual artist and 1000 euros for each band.
