Concerto dos We Trust encerra WestWay Lab 2.0

O segundo momento do WestWay Lab termina com um concerto dos We Trust, projeto que tem como mentor André Tentugal e que se tem vindo a afirmar junto dos fãs e da crítica, confirmando o talento desta banda emergente.
Após dois anos de retiro criativo, os We Trust inauguram assim a sua tour 2014 no #CCVF, em #Guimarães, para apresentar o novo trabalho, cujo single de apresentação é uma canção épica dedicada às pessoas e que muitos já chamam de hino – “We Are The Ones” -, um apelo ao positivismo, um grito de esperança, esse motor que faz com que o mundo não pare de girar.
Os bilhetes para o concerto já se encontram disponíveis neste link. Mais informação em www.ccvf.pt.

The second moment of WestWay Lab ends with a concert by We Trust, a project mentored by André Tentúgal that has been hailed among public and the specialty media critics, confirming the talent of this emerging band.
After two years on creative retreat, a first sample of his new album has been released, the premiere single, “We Are The Ones,” which has been winning over all who have heard it. This is an impressive song dedicated to people, one which many have hailed as a hymn, a song which rallies to the notion of unity and change.

Tickets for the concert are now available at this link. More information at www.ccvf.pt.

LECTURE | TIM LAWRENCE (28 JUNHO)

Tim Lawrence

Tim Lawrence, professor universitário e um estudioso atento dos movimentos culturais das grandes cidades do mundo, marca presença no WestWay Lab 2.0 protagonizando uma Lecture no Café Concerto do CCVF.
É autor de vários livros sobre o tema, incluindo o referencial “Love saves the day” que retrata o aparecimento de núcleos artísticos na década de 70 em Nova Iorque, que mais tarde viriam a marcar de forma decisiva a identidade cultural daquela cidade. Tim virá falar sobre a importância desses núcleos, muitas vezes invisíveis aos nossos olhos no contexto atual de massificação, mas que na profundidade do seu trabalho apontam tendências e caminhos inovadores a partir da maturação de novas linguagens. Pensaremos assim a cidade como um corpo orgânico, que nos proporciona um conjunto de experiências muitas vezes apenas disponíveis através de pequenos trajetos exploratórios. A Lecture tem início às 23h30 e a entrada é livre.

Tim Lawrence, a university professor and academic who studies the cultural movements in large cities around the world, will be at WestWay Lab 2.0 starring a Lecture at the Café Concerto of CCVF.
Tim Lawrence is the author of various books on the theme of cultural movements, including “love saves the day” which describes the emergence of those groups of artists in New York in the 1970s who would later become icons of cultural identity in the city. Tim will speak about the importance of these core groups in a context which may have escaped our notice since our vision is skewed by the present context of mass-consumption but which his research indicates as showing trends and the innovative pathways which open up when a new artistic language comes to maturity. We will thus think of the city as a living body which offers us a set of experiences which are often available only on short exploratory journeys. The Lecture starts at 11:30 p.m. and entrance is free.
