Portuguese Culture programme: Connecting dots – Matchmaking Seminar


The Connecting Dots – matchmaking seminar, organised by the Directorate General for the Arts under the Portuguese Culture Programme, will provide a wide space for brainstorming, sharing experiences and knowledge among participants from Portugal, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Cultural cooperation between artists and experts, arts organisations and institutions from Portugal and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway is an essential feature of the Open Call “Connecting Dots - Arts Mobility and Audience Development” in which projects will include mandatory partnerships between one or more Portuguese artistic entities, one or more donor states artistic entities and one or more Portuguese hosting municipalities.

The seminar will be structured around pitching and matchmaking sessions to promote and present communications on the importance of the arts and municipalities for local and regional development.

Participation in the seminar is subject to registrations and space capacity. Financial support for travel to Lisbon is available for interested entities.
