Details: WOOL – Covilhã Urban Art Festival, that merged in 2011 in Covilhã, for various reasons beyond our control, didn’t get more support or funding for a second edition, so obviously we searched for other geographies, new projects and new formats.
The first place that welcome us was LXFactory in Lisbon (as Rua Rodrigues Faria, 103 – www.lxfactory.com), undeniably the most creative and artistic center of the capital, which was installed in an old flourmill and later printer industry, a place filled with old and gray facades.
The first edition of the activities baptized as WOOL ON TOUR occurred in may 2012 and the format designed was to challenge a group pf artists from different backgrounds and professional experiences, to work side by side for a week, sharing a whole variety of practices and techniques.
