Philosophising on life
Exhibitions of international artistic works are held on Fogo Island, accompanied by publications on the exhibits. The island continues to be a location for films. Discussions are held among critics and artists on such topics as the survival of culture. In August, the Brimstone Head Folk Festival brings music and local dances.
