AI Fundraising Gala Dinner

AI Fundraising Gala Dinner

Dear Friend of Arte Institute,

It is with great pride and happiness that we invite you to join the Arte Institute and its friends to celebrate Arte Institute’s Fifth Anniversary with a Fundraising Gala Dinner for its 2016 program. The dinner will take place at Nomo SoHo Hotel, April 16 at 7.45 pm.

Since April 2011, Arte Institute has been a space for inter-cultural inspiration and a catalyst for an innovative dialogue between the Portuguese Arts and Culture and many artistic communities around the world. In the last five years, the Arte Institute has become a centre of innovation and an image of the Contemporary Portugal while reaching out and strengthening its message and vision to 14 countries and 29 cities across the globe. In 2015, the Arte Institute presented program in all continents.

Fernando Pessoa has encouraged us with his words “The man is the size of his dream”. We have been following his message with our hearts and passion and it has guided us to where we are today: a space for Portugal, for its artists, and for all of us. Today we are certain that Portugal is the size of the ones that have the courage to imagine it. Arte Institute imagines it everyday!

Determination, imagination and will have built Arte Institute. Now we reach out to you to participate in this journey. With your support and dedication, Arte Institute will continue to grow and develop for being a unique platform where art bridges audiences with different cultural background and strengthen spaces that offer a creative environment for Portugal and its artists in the field of art, literature, music, dance, theatre and film.

Please join us for Arte Institute’s Anniversary Fundraising Gala Dinner, where we also honor our patrons, Fundação Luso-Americana para o Desenvolvimento (FLAD), Caixa Geral de Depósitos and Câmara Municipal de Cascais. Our special guests, the musician Rita Redshoes and the writer José Luis Peixoto, will be present.
