vaga is a space to think about the arts and knowledge, attentive to the island's dynamics and inhabitants. In Ponta Delgada, Anda&Fala's new headquarters intends to provide the city with a space dedicated to contemporary arts, a regular and multidisciplinary program involving exhibition projects, performances, conversations, workshops/masterclasses, and artistic residencies.

This project's main objective is to extend the Association's activities in the territory, both in space and in time. It focuses on creating a year-round program, mediation and continuity projects, and support to the artist community based or in movement through the island, contributing to and promoting a healthy and synergistic cultural ecosystem.

The creation of vaga results from a timely combination of ambitions - internal goals of Anda&Fala and ambitions of the Association for the city of Ponta Delgada and the Azores region, as a reference geography in the fields of culture and contemporary artistic production. Ten years after its foundation, finding a workspace and a warehouse that would support the Association's regular activity became imperative. At the same time, the island's cultural dynamics call for a new space that can act as a platform for a new generation of artists who aspire to other formats and presences.

vaga (wave in Portuguese) translates the idea of movement, permanence and intensity that we imagine for the city. It takes us back to the island and its geographical condition and tells us about new times, other rhythms and patterns that are renewed.
