“The importance of sharing Guimarães, as a territory of textile culture, is due to the fact that the heritage and textile memory of these communities have had a strong economic, social and cultural impact for more than two centuries. And it is in this challenge that we set ourselves: connecting dots, between memory and textile heritage and contemporaneity. Through contemporary artistic creation.” Joaquim Pinheiro
