Agenda » Madeira Cultural Festivals
Madeira Cultural Festivals  Madeira Cultural Festivals

 

The Regional Secretariat for Economy, Tourism and Culture,  through its Department of Culture, in a perspective of pursuing a change of paradigm regarding cultural intervention in Madeira, mainland Portugal and Europe, introduced a brand-project aiming to enhance and promote Madeira’s cultural offer, with the creation of festivals, held on a regular basis, able to fit in and integrate the Region’s cultural agenda, and also seeking to boost potential local cultural tourism in other markets, nationally and international. Accordingly, it was launched an application, in 2009, to European financing, under the Intervir+ Programme - Operational Programme for the Enhancement of Economic Potential and Territorial Cohesion(co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund). In the following year took off the different stages of the project, and it was officially conceived the Madeira Cultural Festivals (FCM) brand.
By the end of 2013, and aiming to carry on with the FCM brand-project the Regional Secretariat submitted its prorogation request to European financing for 2014/15. Thus it has been possible to keep on organizing and producing all four major annual cultural events held in the region: Regional Meeting of Philharmonic Bands, Madeira Music Festival, Atlantic Roots Festival and Madeira Organ Festival.
Today, the "FCM" is a registered trademark, as a cultural image of Madeira, widely promoted in all these festivals and through different partnerships, particularly with the Regional Tourism Board (DRT), also partaking in several national and international trade markets annually held in the tourism sector. It has also proved to be essential for the promotion of Madeira as a tourism destination, due to the exchange of cultural experiences between local and international artists, and also because the project as placed the Island on the route of an European cultural programme, through partnerships established with external organizations in the promotion of these events.
The promotion of culture within locals and among visitors enriches the artistic activity. It also strengthens the trend of recent years, with the increasing affluence of local population to concerts, ballets, commented concerts, Tertulia, and other events that take place during the period of each festival.
