The Culture Programme launched on 5th of September the open call “Local development through the Safeguarding and Revitalization of Coastal Cultural Heritage” to fund projects throughout the national territory.
In order to support and enlighten potential candidates for this open call, the Directorate-General for Cultural Heritage will hold three clarification sessions, on October 14th, 15th and 17th in Angra do Heroísmo, Horta and Ponta Delgada.
On October 14, the first session will be held at 2:30 pm, at the Regional Directorate of Culture, in Angra do Heroísmo. On October 15, the second session will be held at the João José da Graça Public Library and Regional Archive, in Horta, at 3:00 pm. And on October 17, the third session will be held at the Ponta Delgada Public Library and Regional Archive, at 10:00 am.
These events aim to contribute to the programme objectives knowledge, and to support and clarify potential promoters for this call, targeted to local agents and communities.
The added value of creating projects under this call is that they can be carried out in multiple partnerships with donor states entities, encouraging the sharing of experiences, enhancing resources capacitation based on good practices, the use of new technologies, and the internationalization of the Portuguese cultural heritage.
Thereby, the programme expects to produce important impact on the revitalization and sustainable development of local communities.
The presentations are of a technical scope, with questions and answers moment.
Both sessions are promoted by the Azores Directorate Regional for Culture and respective Public Libraries, in collaboration with the Directorate General of Cultural Heritage, as programme operator.
Admission is free, although subject to registration and space capacity.
