Artemrede is a cultural cooperation project operating uninterruptedly for 14 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 16 Portuguese municipalities - Abrantes, Alcanena, Alcobaça, Almada, Barreiro, Lisboa, Moita, Montemor-o-Novo, Montijo, Oeiras, Palmela, Pombal, Santarém, Sesimbra, Sobral de Monte Agraço and Tomar – and 1 private association – Acesso Cultura.
The mission of Artemrede materializes in several projects and initiatives, among them the coproduction of shows, the implementation of multiannual projects focused on territorial development and on the engagement of local communities, political debate and the organization of the Manobras Festival. These projects and initiatives are Artemrede’s main intervention areas. They get complemented by cultural programming, which is defined on an annual basis through a call for projects.
Therefore, Artemrede is willing to receive proposals for artistic projects to be developed throughout 2020 and in the 1st half of 2021. 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 operator / company is invited to present up to four proposals. If more than four proposals are submitted, only the first four will be considered.
In the framework of the Manobras Festivasl, Artemrede is particularly (but not exclusively) interested in receiving projects in the following artistic areas:

INFORMATION ON THE SELECTION PROCESS
|1.||A first selection will be done by the Executive Direction of Artemrede and the local programmers;|
|2.||All programmers will have access to all the proposals but will only be able to choose among those primarily selected;|
|3.||Each programmer has a financial plafond and takes decisions according to that amount. It is therefore essential that the provided budgets are as accurate as possible.|
|4.||Only international proposals gathering the interest and the approval of at least 3 programmers will be selected.|
|5.||The group of Visionários from Artemrede do also take part in the process of selection and programming. Visionários are members of the local communities, people of different ages and different professional backgrounds – always out of the arts scene. Under the coordination of a local programmer, they watch videos from the shows, exchange ideas and reflect upon several questions related to the programming process. At the end of this process they will select the proposals they want to be presented in their venues. In this context, only proposals including a record of the full show (or a record which is sufficiently elucidating of its content) will be considered for the Visionários selection.|
