EGEAC – Empresa de Gestão de Equipamentos e Animação Cultural
For over twenty years, EGEAC has been promoting, preserving and organising Lisbon’s cultural events, through its street activities and management of such facilities as the São Luiz and LU.CA theatres, a number of museums and art galleries, and landmarks like the Monument to the Discoveries and the São Jorge Castle. An entity with a wide-ranging involvement in the city, EGEAC organises a programming that is multidisciplinary, encompassing, inclusive and democratic, while aiming at being an active and receptive operator that works in both the contemporary sphere and the more popular fields.
Its goal and mission is to be the leading name in terms of cultural creation and divulgation in the city of Lisbon, a reference as concerns the management of cultural spaces and events, an agent of heritage valorisation, and the activator of an artistic and cultural network. EGEAC intends to create a unique, distinctive cultural personality for Lisbon, stimulating artistic creation and divulgation, supporting major cultural projects and facilitating the communication between the city and its local, national and international audiences.
