At Culturgest, we present a regular program dedicated to contemporary creation in the fields of theatre, dance, music, cinema and the visual arts and offer an educational program in all of these areas, aimed at audiences of all ages and social and cultural backgrounds. We also develop an intensive discursive programme about a large range of issues related to art, science, politics and society, in close collaboration with artists, scholars, universities and other organisations from civil society. Themes that we have been giving attention to and will continue to explore over the next years include: migration, cultural diversity and decolonization, gender and, not in the least, ecology and climate change.

We like to do things in collaboration and develop the program of Culturgest as part of a national and international network of partnerships and exchanges. We co-produce and host various independent festivals (the film festivals IndieLisboa and DocLisboa and the performing arts festivals Alkantara and Almada Festival), collaborate intensively with local and international universities and research centres, co-produce performances and exhibitions on a national and international level and open our doors for independent organisations and producers. All these collaborations are ways to enrich our work and deepen the impact and reach of whatever is created and organised together.

We seek to widen and multiply audiences for contemporary creation and debate and take active action to reach out to young people and culturally and socially diverse groups from our city. We try to include our audiences in what we do and look for different ways to stimulate participation.

Being part of ACT – Art, Climate, Transition touches on almost all of the above mentioned concerns, from international to issue based programming, and from audience development to the benefits of collaboration. As a final note: ecology is not only a concern in our program, but also a way of doing things: we work daily to reduce our ecological footprint and Culturgest’s environmental management is ISO 14001 certified.

Nature abhors a straight line

Exhibition by Gabriela Albergaria

The work of the artist Gabriela Albergaria focuses on understanding the acculturation of landscape and nature, through the migratory processes and globalization from the fifteenth century onward. The artist uses multiple typologies, such as: sculpture, installation, works for public space, drawing and photography. This exhibition provides an overview of her activity over the last 15 years.

Mental Storm #3

Debate on Silence

Tempestade Mental (Brain-storm) is synonymous with a self-governed youth parliament. In this context, participants receive an interactive and permeable multimedia script. They can work on it freely – without the presence of adults. Indeed, for 90 minutes, they develop a laboratory for engaging in dialogue. Thus, reflecting and creating images of their own future.
