Artemrede – 2018 programming
Call for international projects

Information for cultural agents and companies

Artemrede is a project of cultural cooperation operating uninterruptedly for 12 years. It focuses on the specificities of the territories through its support to artistic creation, cultural programming, qualification and training and strategies for cultural mediation.

Artemrede currently gathers 15 Portuguese municipalities: Abrantes, Alcanena, Alcobaça, Almada, Barreiro, Lisboa, Moita, Montijo, Oeiras, Palmela, Pombal, Santarém, Sesimbra, Sobral de Monte Agraço and Tomar.

The mission of Artemrede materializes in several projects and initiatives, among them the coproduction of performances, the implementation of multiannual projects aiming territorial development and the engagement of local communities (Odisseia / Visionários / A Manual on Work and Happiness), political debate (Fórum Político) and the organization of the Manobras Festival.These projects and initiatives are Artemrede’s main areas of intervention. They get complemented by cultural programming, which is defined on an annual basis through a call for projects.

Therefore, Artemrede intends to receive proposals for artistic projects to develop throughout 2018. The call is open to proposals of all artistic fields, namely live performances, workshops and training activities, exhibitions and film screenings.

Artemrede’s programming can be presented or developed in theatres, as well as in other cultural venues, schools, unconventional sites or public spaces.

Each cultural agent / company is invited to present up to four proposals: max. two proposals for performances, and max. two proposals of complementary or pedagogical activities. Submitting more than 4 proposals will lead to their complete rejection.

In 2018, between 10 and 15 proposals are expected to be selected by the associated municipalities of Artemrede.
