Location: Casa-Museu Egas Moniz, Avanca, Aveiro (District), Portugal (Country)
description of the project: ESTAU is the result of 2 long years of work, of stops, retreats and great advances. It was intended to create a project that based on the practice of Urban Art, put it in constant dialogue with other arts, heritage, nature, etc.
All this was achieved, with results far beyond what we expected.
"Egas Moniz was passionate about Art. At the door of the house that dwelt in Estarreja, today we still read: "the great schools of fine arts are the museums. I wanted one in every town and in every village for the people to rise in spiritual communion of the beauty. "
In September 2016, Estarreja streets were transformed into a museum with ESTAU. A festival that broughts Urban Art to speak with the city, with the people, with the heritage and nature through murals, installations, workshops, films, lectures, guided tours, music and more, all with the participation of numerous national and international artists."
