ABOUT CULTURE VIEWFINDER
Rich, Intimate, Insider Travel Experiences featuring contemporary culture. Designed for those who never thought they would take a tour.
Culture Viewfinder brings contemporary art, architecture and design to life through its in-depth international curatorial programs.
Created by well-known Canadian architecture + design curator Esther Shipman, Culture Viewfinder has extensively researched and developed unique behind-the-scenes access into the creative world of every destination—visit sites not open to the public, receive personal talks by curators and museum directors, meet the creators and culture mavens in their ateliers, and discover hidden gems in both popular and lesser known neighbourhoods while enjoying atmospheric accommodation, fine wine and regional cuisine.
Portugal is our first destination and Culture Viewfinder is the first company in the world to focus on Portugal’s remarkable post financial-crisis cultural resurgence in contemporary art, architecture, design and cuisine. In the past eight years, Portugal has reinvented itself and arrived as a rising cultural powerhouse in Europe. We call it a Contemporary Cultural Renaissance and named our inaugural 2019 program Portrait of a Contemporary Cultural Renaissance to emphasize this major transformation.
Culture Viewfinder returns post COVID vaccinations with offers of new and refreshed culture travel experiences in 2022.
