Applications for Support to the Cultural and Recreational Associative Movement of the Municipality of Loulé are open until March 31, a fundamental instrument to help associations and clubs in the municipality in the pursuit of their activities and projects.
This initiative is aimed at all associations and other legally constituted, non-profit institutions based in the Municipality of Loulé that carry out activities of public interest with intervention in the cultural and recreational areas.
This is intended to be a process of transparency, rigor, and impartiality, which is why criteria were defined to determine the amount to be granted to each entity, such as public utility status, history, financial balance, development of the regular activity, presence of directors and/or employees on a voluntary basis, the contribution of the project or cultural activity to training and artistic creation, development of cultural activities with a view to inclusion, fostering the interest of children and young people in culture, development of cultural initiatives to occupy the free time of the elderly, children and young people, development of initiatives aimed at cultural decentralization, promotion of cultural events with tourist relevance, among others.
Applications must be submitted by filling in an application form (and respective attached documents), which will be made available on the Loulé City Council website, on the Associative Portal, or whenever requested to the Culture, Museum and Heritage Division, through telephone contact 289 400 885, which must be sent electronically, by email, by March 31st.
The granting of support will be formalized through the signing of a program contract, which will take place in a public ceremony in which representatives of the associations awarded annual support will participate.
Promoting cultural development, increasing citizen participation in the municipality of Loulé, and providing cultural and recreational associations with the ability to develop an Annual Activity Plan (creation, production, and dissemination) are the main objectives of this initiative.
