We are a non-profit cultural foundation that designs, manages and implements artistic projects and socio-educative programs. 

In our mission, two relevant needs converge: the relation between art and citizens and the strengthening of the performing arts professional sector.



We work so that all citizens have access to see shows, live experiences, achieve educational tools and to develop their own expressions in the cultural-artistic field. We also promote that national performing arts teachers, specially the new generation, have a democratic access to opportunities regarding specialization, visualization, validation, advertising, circulation and exportation of their creative services.


In the access field, we hope to expand our network, currently present in four regions, so that in the next three years we reach a coverage of six regions along the country.

In the professional development strengthening field, we seek to position ourselves, in the next three years, as a cultural affairs model in an international level and an example of non-precarious and sustainable employability for creators and agents of the artistic and cultural sector.
