The Directorate-General for the Arts (DGArtes) will support 72 applications, in the competition to support projects in the area of Programming, with 1.85 million euros, the entity announced today.

The provisional results, which will only be final after a hearing period for interested parties, were communicated to the candidates today, the DGArtes said in a statement released today.

Of the 72 applications to be supported, 16 are from the North, 17 from the Center, 12 from the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, 14 from the Alentejo, seven from the Algarve, four from the Autonomous Region of the Azores and two from the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

The DGArtes recalls that the main objective of the support announced today “is to stimulate the cultural offer, by financing cycles, exhibitions, festivals, among other programming activities developed mainly in the national territory”.

Applications for the competition to support projects in the area of Programming ran from October 30 to December 12 last year.

The DGArtes Project Support Program, which will take place this year and includes six calls for tenders, has 13.35 million euros at its disposal.

For the Programming area, 1.91 million euros were available.

The allocation for the Project Support Programme, which was announced in December 2022, was 9.25 million euros for the different areas, namely Visual Arts, Creation – covering performing arts, cross-disciplinary and street arts – Programming, Internationalization and Simplified Procedure.

The financial reinforcement for the 2023 Project Support Program was announced after the results of the 2022 calls became known, in which hundreds of applications were left out due to a lack of available funds, even though they were considered eligible by the juries.

The representative structures of the arts have repeatedly warned of the underfunding of DGArtes’ calls for tenders in the project support program.
