It is with great pride and happiness that we invite you to join Arte Institute and its friends to celebrate Arte Institute’s Third Anniversary with a Fundraising Gala Dinner for its 2014/2015 program.
Since April 2011, Arte Institute has been a space for inter-cultural inspiration and a catalyst for an innovative dialogue between the many artistic communities in the United States, Brazil and Portugal. In the last three years, 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 countries like the United Kingdom and Angola.
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.
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, Espirito Santo Investment Bank and EDP, and introduce our new board members. As special guests, Ruben Alves, director of the movie “Gilded Cage”, and the actors Joaquim de Almeida and Rita Blanco, will be present.
