Summer Garden

22 Jun — 07 Jul 2024 / Free entry

This edition of the Summer Garden celebrates once again the sounds and rhythms of different cultures, introducing, in addition to music, stories and testimonies expressed through images and words.

By expanding into other artistic areas, the Summer Garden now occupies new spaces within the Gulbenkian building. Music will continue to be present in the Sítio da Oliveira and the Open-Air Amphitheatre, but it also takes to the stage of the Grand Auditorium. Additionally the programme will include a series of talks in the Auditorium 2 and a film cycle in the Open-Air Amphitheatre.

In a year that marks such important dates as the 50th anniversary of the 25th of April and the 100th anniversary of Amílcar Cabral’s birth, the Summer Garden is committed to the art of telling difficult stories and experimenting with poetic dialogues that convey solidarity and future.

This year, the programme was curated by Dino D’Santiago (music), Maíra Zenun (cinema) and Kalaf Epalanga (talks).

During the Summer Garden there is free admission to the Gulbenkian Museum and the temporary exhibitions, Saturdays between 18:00 and 21:00 and Sundays between 14:00 and 21:00 (upon ticket collection).

Come on in, Gulbenkian is yours!

The Summer Garden is back. There are many Bodies that move from continent to continent, carrying a collection of memories which intertwine with the present, despite the hopeless drives that go against this natural choreography. Art has always had the power to transform, denounce and, above all, give us Hope for a greater palette of colours that turn into dreams, which allow us to glimpse a New World. The borders are now open so that we can finally form a Human Family.

This year, we invite you to cross the Garden and enter the building, with a contagious and vibrant spirit, the outcome of various points of encounter and recognition. Dancing and celebrating, this less and less utopian New Lisbon re-signifies its History in a Gulbenkian that is my home, your home, our home!

Come, Nu Mistura. Nôs tudu eh Kriolu!
