For the second year in a row, Lisbon has the pleasure of hosting Young Minds Matter Lx 2017, an event that has proven to be a pillar in the promotion of arts, ideas, lifestyles, topics and discussions. This time it arrives in the form of a festival, from the 8th to the 10th of September.

Anjos 70, former Feira das Almas will be the stage for this event that will bring to Lisbon a selection of works, ideas and projects by artists from several European countries, all of them young and wanting to show what they’re worth.

Elevate Young Minds is the name of the organization responsible for the creation and production of this event. Based on Leeds, England, it integrates several members from different nationalities such has Nigerian, Portuguese and of course Britain. This organization has gone as far as Tanzania in some of its initiatives.

This is a non-profit project that feeds of the will to showcase talent and break barriers created by bureaucracy, misinformation and lack of knowledge. Elevate Young Minds focuses on building bridges between young creative minds and more established artists who sometimes drift away from the younger generations.
