Funchal Cultura represents a milestone in local culture policies, as it is the first municipal site of this nature in the Autonomous Region of Madeira.
The Funchal city hall assumes culture and arts as fundamental and determining elements for the dynamization of different social areas, leveraging the progress of a more participatory, inclusive, creative and critical society. Funchal will continue to invest in Culture by promoting and supporting the creation, initiatives, projects and actions aimed at the cultural development of the city and the expansion of its potential, as well as the preservation of its identity.
On this site you can find useful information about municipal projects, competitions, awards, partners, event scheduling and mapping entities and individual artists.
