Festival Cultura (Cultural Festival, in Portuguese) was an event located at Timor-Leste’s Presidential Palace in November 2010. David Palazón was commissioned to curate a 3-day festival program in collaboration with the Secretary of State for Culture. Additionally, and using content from the Tatoli ba Kultura archive, he was also requested to design the concept, an exhibition, a 50-page catalogue and the advertising campaign for the event (all in 3 languages). The festival was divided in several areas: traditional arts & crafts exhibition, didactic space, evening stage, film room, gastronomy area and shops.
