WHERE WE ARE

Since its creation in 2011, Artway has presented an avant-garde and globalizing vision, based on the highest standards of artistic demand and quality. A strong driving force for Portuguese classical music in Europe, Artway represented Portugal at the European Association of Artistic Agents (House of Culture of Europe, Brussels) between 2014 and 2017, the first Portuguese institution to do so since the association was created in 1947. As a company dedicated to cultural management, artistic management and record production and publishing, over the more than 10 years of its existence, Artway has strived to create relationships of trust with musicians, cultural institutions and local authorities, integrating programming networks, in order to develop a mechanism of mutual help that can enhance and strengthen artistic work, particularly in the field of classical music. It is active not only in the field of music, but also, through multidisciplinary projects, in other artistic areas such as literature, theater and dance. In a logic of decentralization, Artway has been involved in the realization of diversified artistic productions, on a consistent and regular basis, with the aim of forming and promoting the increase of audiences from Bragança to Portimão, passing through Madeira and the Azores, and also outside Portugal in countries such as Brazil, Spain, France, Hungary and the United Kingdom.

Among the vast cultural production are the following projects: "Bridging Musical Heritage" (Funded by the European Commission / Creative Europe 2022 - 2024); "Festival Província Sonora"; "International Clarinet Studio"; "Temporada Artway 2021/2022" (Institutional Support Ministry of Culture); "Showcase@ESMAE" and "Showcase@Fundão"; "Viajando e rindo com Mozart" and "Suggia and Casals - passion and music (Casa da Música); "Europe's Day Concert" (Jerónimos Monastery, Lisbon 2013); "Mozart Concert Arias - Un moto di Gioia", by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker/CNB at the Rivoli Municipal Theater (Porto, 2014); "O Poeta dos Sons" (CCB, 2013 / Casa da Música, 2017); "Inside Music Machine" (ESMAE - FEUP - FMDUP, between 2011 and 2013).

 

With regular collaborations with the most prominent national cultural institutions (CCB, Casa da Música, Metropolitana, EGEAC, Culturgest, among others), Artway has been involved in commissioning various works from Portuguese composers, as well as recording this heritage in phonographic editions that have become a reference, through its publishing houses Artway Records and Artway Next. In this field, it has significantly expanded the recording of the national repertoire (with a considerable number of first recordings of unpublished repertoire) and of artists active in our country, which is proving to be a fundamental material and immaterial heritage for preserving current cultural production for the present and the future.

All this work has been assiduously echoed in the most important Portuguese media, such as Antena 2 and the newspapers Público, Expresso, Jornal de Letras, tv's SIC and RTP, but also in the international context, namely in reference media such as Radio France, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Music Magazine, Gramophone Magazine, Westdeutscher Rundfunk Köln (WDR), among many others.

 

In terms of training, Artway has created educational activities such as the Artistic Career Management Workshops. These activities were reinforced with the opening, in 2020, of the Artway Showcase platform, which welcomes emerging projects and artists and which would trigger the "Showcase @" event, a traveling exhibition of young artists.
