The “Municipality of Culture” project consists of a title ascribed by Madeira’s Regional Government to one of the region’s municipalities, during the period of one year, in which the selected council should develop a set of diversified actions within the cultural area and focus its own particularities.


Goals:

1. To focus on cultural decentralization.
2. Contributing for the promotion and preservation of regional and local cultural heritage, aiming to a deeper knowledge of the Madeiran cultural roots, also reaffirming our regional identity.
3. Encourage all local institutions and associations, whether cultural or recreational, to promote the arts (painting, photography, sculpture, dance, music, theatre, cinema, design and fashion), literature and heritage (ethnographic, architectural and arts crafts).
4. Streamlining and enhance the promotion of the existing infrastructures (museums, cultural and civic centers, libraries, archives, among other areas of cultural interest).
5. To include the “Municipality of Culture” in the calendar of regional programming.


Application

The selection of “Municipality of Culture” requires an annual application, which should contain a programme of cultural activities to be developed within the goals defined by its regulation laws. The election process is based on the principle of rotation, in which the City selected may only re-apply and be re-elected after a period of four years.


Financing

The project has its own budget, nevertheless, the Regional Government and the City Halls also financially support it. However, other sources of funding, whether public or private, may occur as incentives regulated by the Law of Patronage.
