On the 21st of June, at the Galeria da Casa de Burgos / DRCA (Évora), we participated in a debate on Cultural Programming in the Alentejo. An organization of Acesso Cultura with the Regional Directorate of Culture of Alentejo.
With the participation of Cátia Terrinca (Um Coletivo), Luís García (Evora City Council), John Romão (Futurama - Cultural and Artistic Ecosystem of Baixo Alentejo), Mariana Mata Passos (Pó de Vir a Ser) and Rui Horta (O Espaço of time)
“It seems that the debate around what it means to program and the profile and technical preparation of those who do programming is going around in circles. There are those who consider this function essential, who complain about programming by taste, duplicate programming and control gathered in one person.
What is the role of a cultural organization in your locality? What does it mean to “program” a cultural institution? What qualifications are needed to do so? What kind of conditions must exist?
None of these issues are new. Access Cultura addressed this issue at the 2020 annual conference. Other entities and associations in the sector produced documents with recommendations. Even so, we continue around the same. How can we build on what has already been discussed and reflected on and take the next step?”
