Porto, the European Capital of Culture in 2001, does not disappoint those who visit it. The cultural offers are wide and diverse, the result of an increasingly strong artistic dynamic. Young talents and creators have emerged in recent years and have contributed to the affirmation of a Porto of the arts.
ROSA ET AL Townhouse shares this spirit since the early days and has taken an active role in promoting new artists. The ROSA ET AL Townhouse Exhibitions with two annual editions are our contribution to the enrichment of the city's artistic panorama. We want to showcase and help new talents. The walls of ROSA ET AL Townhouse are transformed into a gallery, displaying the works of those who are still taking their first steps.
