Culture and Art Festivals

An art festival has a way of transforming a place.

Projects and art exhibitions, work that’s usually hidden away in an artists studio, take their place for a moment out in public, revealing the oftentimes hidden layers of culture in a place.

Matador covers local and international culture and art festivals with ground level reports, interviews with festival organizers and participating artists, and photo essays to help share these places and their culture with our community worldwide.
