The proposal for the 4th edition centres around living and rediscovering Lumiar ‐ the oldest council of the city which celebrates its 750th anniversary in 2017. It also happens to be the area of the city with the highest number of inhabitants. The historical and patrimonial relevance of this location will be a prominent feature of the programming along with the importance of the experiences felt by locals daily. The objective is to decentralize the attention given to more visible areas of the city and create a new interest in the many unique neighbourhoods which make this a fascinating metropolis , by bringing to the forefront the relevance of the spaces and its immaterial heritage. "In each neighbourhood, a city." ‐ will be the mission statement of the 4th edition of LisbonWeek as a reference to a re‐discovery of a city that will last no less than ten days.

LisbonWeek tickets can be found on sale on the Ticketline online platform.

★ Discover Lisbon

LisbonWeek is a cultural event co-produced by Actu and the Lisbon Council since 2012.

In each edition, LisbonWeek invites the public for one week to explore a neighbourhood. An invitation to discover not only material patrimony – through guided visits to unique locations – but also to immaterial patrimony through multi-discinplinary and creative approaches. Starting with the unique dynamic of the neighbourhood in question, the LisbonWeek programming is created to bring focus to the differentiating characteristics of the area - offering the city a cultural and artistic product that supports plurality of experiences.
