Individual musicians residing in Portimão, or bands in which at least one of the elements resides in this city, with a minimum of one year of proven artistic activity, and who have suffered a break in income or who have suspended their activity due to the pandemic may apply for this project.
The application can be made between 1 and 15 January, by sending an email to email@example.com, with a brief resume about yourself as an artist / band, as well as the complete address and NIF, and a small descriptive piece (up to 2500 characters) of the musical project. A video can also be uploaded for up to five minutes.
The selected artists will be given the opportunity to present their work in a show to be held in the Black Box of TIME, in the first quarter of 2021. The concerts, open to the public but subject to the limitation of the room, will later be broadcast on the social networks of the municipality.
After the projects 'TEMPO OnLive', which supported more than 15 artists in June and July, and "Portimão, Dá te Palco!", which, in November and December, gave – literally – the stage to 20 artists and bands of various municipal genres, "The Stage is Yours" is the third project to directly support local artists since the beginning of the pandemic. For this initiative, they will offer a financial support of €500 for each individual artist and €1,000 for each band.
