From 23rd to 27th October, Braga will hold index, an event dedicated to the relationship between art and technology, which is part of a wider program of the city of Braga as a UNESCO Creative City for Media Arts..


Divided into three programming axes - Conferences, Performance and Exhibition - index welcomes some of the most relevant names in the cross between art and technology. A total of 29 guests, artists and thinkers from five continents are together in Braga for five days to present to a diverse audience the different artistic manifestations where technology has a structuring role.



Braga Creative City of UNESCO in Media Arts

Since 2017, Braga is part of a network of 180 cities around the world that put creativity at the center of its social, cultural and economic development. At the time it was designated Creative City of UNESCO in Media Arts, the city assumed a commitment and plan of action for the next four years, which underpin the presence of this artistic field in the city through the creation of dedicated spaces, an Educational Service, a regular Media Arts program, among many other actions. This plan is currently under implementation and index is one of its visible forms.
