Country Focus: Brazil – New Futures Ahead
12 December 2023 @ 16:00 - 18:00
Join us for this event full of opportunities for international cultural cooperation and exchange between the Netherlands and Brazil.
Current developments in Brazil’s ever-vibrant cultural and creative scenes open up new opportunities for cooperation and exchange with the Netherlands.
In particular Brazilian artists of Indigenous or African descent and their work, are broadening the local and international dialogue of contemporary art and shed light on the most urgent issues of our time. As can be experienced at the 35th edition of the São Paulo Art Biennial, but also in Brazilian museums and other cultural (heritage) institutions.
With the support of Brazil’s re-established Ministry of Culture early this year, there is again a strong focus on innovation and creativity that can contribute to a sustainable future. The many cultural festivals and events like Rio Innovation Week and Festival Path in São Paulo, among others, show that Brazil is reaching out for international cooperation and exchange.
Brazil has been a focal country in Dutch international cultural policy for many years already. The network of Dutch-Brazilian collaboration extends across all artistic disciplines.
Would you like to know more about cultural developments in this country and find out how this might apply to your own work or plans to collaborate with Brazil? Then join us on 12 December!
