PERFORMART – Association for the Performing Arts in Portugal aims to promote - both nationally, as well as internationally - multiple forms of cultural and artistic expression within the scope of the performing arts.

PERFORMART’s mission is, among other objectives, to promote efforts and initiatives that enable recognizing and developing the performing arts sector and its professionals in a healthy and sustainable manner, on various levels: by developing networking structures amongst its associates, by representing its members’ interests before national and international institutions, and by promoting a joint stance on matters that are relevant to the sector and to its professionals.

The association intends to create spaces for analysis and reflection, organizing and promoting work groups and studies of a scientific nature. It also stimulates the circulation of its associates’ shows and the establishment of partnerships among its various members and other associations.

Performart will promote a public presentation of the association and its objectives on 23 February, at 2:30pm, at Teatro do Bolhão – Oporto, and on 24 February, at 2:30pm, at São Luiz Teatro Municipal – Lisbon. 

Besides the Association’s Board and current Associates, the session will also count on the presence of Anita Debaere, Director of Pearle* – Live Performance Europe, Alexandra Bobes, representative of the Les Forces Musicales Association, and Morten  Gjelten from Norsk Teater- og Orkesterforening – NTO / Association of Norwegian Theatres and Orchestras, who will talk about their associations and their importance in the development of the cultural sector within their respective national and European contexts.
