" The Platform for Arts and Creativity is a project based on an infrastructure that has transformed the Old Open Market Area of Guimarães into a multifunctional space dedicated to artistic, cultural and social-economic activity.
This multipurpose space is dedicated to arts and various creative endeavours and it kicks off with an exhibition by Portuguese painter José de Guimarães, with pieces from his private collection of pre-Colombian, African and Chinese art.
