braga media arts
Braga has been officially named as UNESCO Creative City for Media Arts. Since its foundation, the city has been at the forefront of different periods in its history. Founded by the Celts in 300 B.C., it was an administrative centre for the Roman Empire, which later elevated the territory to the status of city. As eras passed, its urban fabric was progressively contaminated by new artistic and architectural currents, of which the Baroque period is the most significant and visible to this day. Avid for new things, throughout time, the city became richer in diversity and more curious about the future.
The art of technology – as a response to the recession in the textile industry in the late 20th century, Braga knew how to reinvent its economic fabric with the emergence of a technological cluster which paved the way for a new era of technology companies, digital communication studios, labs and research centers in the field of robotics, multimedia and media arts. All of these are indicators that show the city is enthusiastically headed for an increasingly digital future.
At the same time, a cultural ecosystem started taking shape and occupying its space in the city. In the Braga artistic scene, contemporary and interdisciplinary, the crossing of new media with formal artistic expressions has earned its place. The recourse to technologies in artistic practice has made it so that many projects, a highlight of which is gnration’s artistic programming, have transported Braga to a dimension of international recognition.
Startup Braga is an innovation hub, conceived to help projects with high entrepreneurial potential to reach international markets, and create their business models.
Focused on three areas – Nanotechnology, Health Technologies and Digital Economy – Startup Braga has managed to exceed expectations and support projects from their ideation stage to the time when they reach the market, through its Incubation, Acceleration and Pre-Acceleration programs.
