PING! / Exodus, with Pablo Berástegui

Aiming to show the northern side of Bonfim, in Porto, to the pings!, the Exodus route showed a neighbourhood that has become a place of residence and work for a growing number of artists. This urban flow, which crosses streets such as Alegria, Anselmo de Braamcamp or Santos Pousada, is accompanied by the opening of new independent cultural projects and spaces, but not only. The visit revealed a group of creators and their projects, which materialise in different scales and structures, complementing and contributing to the neighbourhood. 
Cultural producer, Pablo Berástegui is director of the documentary photography project Salut au monde!, based in Porto. He was director of the International Photography and Visual Arts Festival PhotoEspaña. He was also General Director of San Sebastián 2016 European Capital of Culture, Director of La noche en blanco de Madrid and responsible for the cultural spaces Matadero Madrid and Centro Conde Duque (2013). He currently teaches in cultural management and curatorial courses in different faculties in Spain.
