Lisbon is once more hosting the ImigrArte Festival. Organised entirely by volunteers of as many as 30 immigrant associations, this festival is considered as an important social and cultural event. It involves the voluntary participation of 250 artists from more than 25 countries and is divided into areas such as music, dance, theatre, cinema, visual arts, photography, literature and crafts. The program also includes shows, international gastronomy stands, debates, conferences and workshops.

The goal of this event is to highlight the social and cultural potential of immigrants by promoting dialogue between the various immigrant communities, as well between Portuguese citizens and foreign citizens. In addition, the festival wants to promote art and culture produced by immigrants and their descendants.

With around 3500 visitors per year, ImigrArte has relied on logistical support and partnerships with the Museu do Oriente Foundation, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the O Século Foundation, the Lisbon City Council, the Santa Casa da Misericordia of Lisboa, EGEAC, RTP 2, SIC, RTPÁfrica, TVGlobo, RDPÁfrica, Antena 1, the newspaper Slovo, the magazine Brasileirinho, just to name a few.
