WHO WE ARE

ImageImageImageImageImage

Driven by a love for art, music, performance and entertainment, along with years of experience getting our hands dirty and making things happen, GHOST has been created as a new concept in cultural production, occupying a space that has been asking to be filled. The name reflects our main philosophy – we want you to worry as little as possible, while we take care of everything behind the scenes. Best case scenario, you hardly see us until it’s time to enjoy what you have asked us to create.

 

But it doesn’t stop there. Guided by a clear vision, we want to help you achieve the best result possible, and this means giving you our input about the best way to move forward. View us as your partners, because we want things to go well just as much as you do. We are invested in everything we do and are proud of what we have achieved.

Over the past years, GHOST’s Portuguese-born founders, Luís Alcatrão and Tiago Silva, have been involved in several large-scale productions across the globe, including Canada, China (Beijing, Hong Kong & Macau), France, Italy, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Malaysia, the Philippines, Portugal, Romania, South Korea, Tahiti, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Uruguay and the USA. Between them they have worked in the production and management of art exhibitions, public art, performances, live music, festivals and cultural associations.

 

This vast experience has positioned GHOST in a privileged position through a deep understanding of how these areas work, along with a large list of contacts that are invaluable in guaranteeing success and creating breathtaking experiences. That said, GHOST only works with people who are passionate and devoted to their craft. We strive to create professional relationships that are fruitful, based on trust and built to last a lifetime.

Our goal is to act on as many fronts as possible, creating links between artists, musicians, performers, promoters, companies, curators and all other players within the cultural field. Working with us is more than a professional agreement, it is an exploration of the boundaries of cultural creation in all of its forms. So join us in creating this new way of producing, creating and experiencing. We promise we won’t let you down. We don’t know how.
