The Loulé Theater Support Grant is an important instrument to support theatrical creation, focused on the presentation of new plays. On the other hand, it allows amateur and professional groups based in the municipality to have effective support for the creative component. The Grant also promotes the decentralization of cultural practices and dynamics in Loulé, implying the presentation of three shows by each amateur group, one of which must be at the Cineteatro Louletano and two in the parishes of the municipality of Loulé. In this incentive there is also a training dimension, contributing to greater artistic training and qualification of the various competing structures and the groups are also obliged to attend a workshop in the area of theatre, guided by professionals.
The Grant also encourages the external promotion and circulation of professional theatre structures in Louletano and professional groups are also linked to three presentations, one of them at the Cineteatro Louletano and two in other municipalities in the Algarve in rooms that are part of Rede Azul – Rede de Teatros do Algarve or in the Network of Portuguese Theaters and Cinemas – RTCP – a network of which Cineteatro Louletano is a member.
