9th Edition, 2020

9th edition

Open House Lisboa 2020 has a new format adapted to the restrictions of this pandemic period, in an edition that does not include visiting spaces and entering apartments, museums or private houses. We invite you to wander around Lisbon independently, through sound walks narrated in the first person by eight guests from different fields of the Culture.

By downloading the eight audio files or listening it on streaming, your cell phone or electronic device will accompany you on this sound walk of undeniable richness and diversity. Hand in hand with unique voices, this Open House Lisbon suggests amazing ways to hear, see, feel and live the public space of Lisbon. The podcasts are in Portuguese only. With a duration that varies between 21 and 71 minutes, they are available on the Soundcloud platform and Spotify, and remain online for all those who could not participate on 26 and 27 September, so they could now live and experience this unprecedented edition at a convenient time.

For 2020, the Open House Lisboa programme invites you to leave your home and does not include any guided tours to spaces.
