Today the Town Hall hosted the Public Session to sign the Support and Financing Protocol for the Aveiro, Portuguese Capital of Culture 2024 program, which will count on the allocation of 2 million euros from the 2030 Center and the Ministries of Culture and Territorial Cohesion.
The session was attended by the President of the Aveiro City Council (CMA) José Ribau Esteves, the Minister of Culture, Pedro Adão e Silva, the Minister of Territorial Cohesion, Ana Abrunhosa and the President of the Braga City Council, Ricardo Rio.
Aveiro 2024 has a global investment of 8 million euros, of which 6 million comes from direct revenue from Aveiro City Council and 2 million euros comes from Centro 2030, (1 million euros), from the Ministry of Culture (500 thousand euros ) and the Ministry of Territorial Cohesion (500 thousand euros).
“Aveiro is the only Portuguese Municipality that has consolidated the Decentralization process in the area of Culture, which means that there is still a particularly relevant dose of centralism in this area. In Aveiro, we manage the Museum of Aveiro / Santa Joana with rigor and competence and make a very effective contribution to the good management of the country’s cultural and historical heritage”, recalled the Mayor of Aveiro.
It is in this context that the CMA takes on “the challenge of being Portuguese Capital of Culture in 2024”, knowing that decentralization, especially in Culture, “allows us to take better care of our identity values, our history and especially the future of our lands and our people”, thus making “a qualified contribution to the development and good management of our Portugal”, concluded Ribau Esteves.
This session also saw the signing of the Support and Financing Protocol with Braga City Council, relating to the Portuguese Capital of Culture 2025.
