creative city for
two millennia.


Braga is applying for UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts. Since its foundation the city has been in the avant-garde of its different contemporary scenarios, wether it was under the roman empire or during the sumptuous barroque period. With each challenge, the city has become richer in diversity and more curious about near future.


A challenge is an opportunity. 

Facing the struggles of the industrial crisis of the late 20th century, Braga rose above with the birth of a technology cluster, opening its way to a new era of tech companies, digital communication studios, university research teams in videogames, robotics and media arts, all converging to a sense that the city is heading fully digital.

The art of tech. 

At the same time, a blossoming cultural ecosystem began to thrive. A contemporary artistic scene has been including different media into its production, crossing classical artistic fields with technology. It was this transdisciplinarity, along with international events such as Semibreve Festival, that caught the eye of the world and took the name of Braga to a wider, broader dimension.


Join the future.

This application aims to strenghen this relationships and foster a hub that merges artistic expression with technology and sets Braga as the portuguese capital of Media Arts. Now we need all of you to support us and join this revolution. So let’s get digital, Braga.
