Art + Design


At numbers 155 and 159 in Miraflor street, in Campanhã, two abandoned warehouses have been given a second life in the form of art galleries. Aiming at visitors and or ‘consumers’ that are diverse in age and interests, Espaço Mira and MIRA Fórum are multidisciplinary cultural spaces where photography takes on the leading role.

Photographers Manuela Matos Monteiro and João Lafuente are the promoters behind this revitalisation project that has ‘become a cultural centre in the city’. Exhibits, film festivals, photography night events, book presentations, concerts and theatre and dance shows are some of the events happening in the galleries and contributing to the artistic and cultural awakening of this emerging district.
