The intimate “non-festival” consisted of three days of wine, music, creative workshops and thought-provoking talks.
Last weekend’s CAMP’22 turned Morgado do Quintão into a cultural and artistic meeting point that brought together musicians, creators and thinkers with the public.
More than three hundred people visited CAMP’22, the non-festival, which took place among ancient vineyards, under an ancient olive tree, and in an ancient olive oil mill.
The cultural programme included concerts, talks, workshops and wine tastings on an intimate scale. Fado singer Carminho, singer and songwriter Bruno Pernadas and pianist Mário Laginha were the highlights of this 1st edition.
Over the three days, the CAMP’22 programme also included Talks on various topics, from photography to sensorialism, astrology to poetic creation, ecology and urbanism. Names such as Lourenço Lucena, Isabel Saldanha, Teresa Júdice da Costa and Rita Castel’Branco were part of a panel of speakers in inspiring conversations.
There was also a cycle of workshops called “Gentes da Nossa Terra” (People of Our Land) and daily wine tastings conducted by winemaker Joana Maçanita and Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos, owner of Morgado do Quintão and founder of CAMP.
“For three days, CAMP brought together thinkers, musicians, creators and wine, celebrating the union of culture and agriculture”, says Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos. “This non-festival, born on agricultural land, is proud to have served as a platform and bridge, facilitating access to a larger, more comprehensive type of culture. A seed has been sown for future editions.”
