On the 11th of December, next to the bandstand in Jardim do Marquês, in Porto, at 4 pm, there will be a concentration in defence of Seiva Trupe and Culture, in what one and others have of significance in and for Porto.
The rally is organized by a spontaneous and autonomous group from Seiva Trupe, made up of citizens of Porto’s civil society, under the motto “We will not let Seiva Trupe die”.
The concentration comes after Seiva Trupe was excluded from the granting of Sustained Support from DGArtes to which it had applied for the next 4 years, despite having reached the necessary score for its eligibility, but in which the amount allocated to DGArtes for this purpose was considered insufficient.
Such a decision calls into question the survival of an iconic company from Porto and the country, which in September 2023 will complete 50 years of life and intense cultural activity, reinforced with the return to the resident concert hall, Sala Estúdio Perpétuo, on Rua from Costa Cabral.
The Organization of the rally appeals to all citizens to join this form of protest, in defense of Culture and one of the most emblematic Theater Companies of Invicta.
Always confirm with the concert hall or promoter the conditions of access, confirmation of the date or time, tickets place of sale, price, and availability.
