The Pavilion marked a new milestone in the history of Walk&Talk, creating an open and public house for the festival’s program, a symbol of the project's autonomy, maturity and capacity for innovation as a space of creation and experimentation in the various artistic fields.
The receptivity to the first Pavilion was proven by the way it involved and crossed different audiences, attracted by an inviting, open and activated space with an intense two-week program that included concerts, talks, parties and performances. The Pavilion was the "meeting point" and "starting point" of the activities of Walk&Talk 2018, revived the São João Square and defined a new centrality in the city of Ponta Delgada. Alongside an open invitation to the public, the Pavilion created a confluence space between artists, organizers and visitors, since it brought together various areas essential to the dynamics and management of the festival: canteen, bar, auditorium, stage.
The total budget available for the construction of the Pavilion is € 10,000.00 + PT VAT (ranging from 18% Azores to 23% in mainland Portugal). This amount should include all costs with materials, skilled labor and transportation of materials
