Supporting the international circulation of artists and works

Key objectives of the measure:

In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in 2008 and 2009, the Camões Institute developed a specific programme intended to support the international circulation of artists and works and, in 2010 and 2011, via the IC’s external networks, different initiatives were funded in various fields (performing arts, music, visual arts, cinema, audiovisual and multimedia, architecture, design, literature and transdisciplinary projects), thereby enabling artists to attend international events. The Camões Institute also developed support for publications, production of exhibitions for international venues, promotion of notional film productions, international circulation of films and the participation of film directors. The IC also supports participation of cultural professionals in leading projects such as the São Tomé Art Biennale or the Dockanema documentary film festival (Mozambique).
