Project Promoter: Municipality of Santarém – Portugal

Santarém is located in the Centre of Portugal. Capital of the region is one of the oldest cities of Portugal. The founding of the city of Santarem reports to the Greco-Roman and Christian mythology. The first documented traces of human occupation dating back to the 8th century BC.
In 138 BC the Romans arrived at the ancient settlement, designating it as “Scallabis”, becoming at that time the main trading post and one of the most important administrative centres of the province Lusitania. In the period of Arab occupation was developed its military cultural and artistic importance. Important milestone in the Christian Renewal that defined the Portuguese territory, Santarém was reconquered in 1147 by the first King, Afonso Henriques.
Over the centuries Santarém developed its political, cultural and artistic, having been the scene of several royal courts and local of music, theatre and arts, being owner of a rich heritage.
The Historic Centre of Santarém is constituted by a pleasant Web of narrow and winding streets, with lines and unexpected colours, sprinkled with small local commerce stores. The gastronomy of this region is well renowned, and present in several restaurants across the County, and annually here the National Festival of Gastronomy, and the Nacional Agriculture Fairy.

Brief Description of the project
- Main goals
The Municipality of Santarém is starting a process of working together with the cultural agents of the city in order to establish a working partnership that allows to implement a strategy for participatory management of cultural activities, from the point of view of programming and fundraising.
This methodology is based on a matrix of joint programming that is conventionally designated among us by “Project In.Str”.
In means Inclusion of: Cultural Agents; Various forms of arts; Different audiences; Different audience’s needs. But means also the reference to a specified territory (in our case) the historic centre of the city of Santarém.
We plan the design of this programming scheme based on 3 vectors:
- Visual Arts (Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Video…);
- Performing Arts (Music, Theatre, Dance…);
- Debates, (some in in Public Space) Seminars, Workshops… (a transversal line to the project development devoted to CULTURE and ART, and including a Forum for citizenship)
The application to the Creative Europe Programme will make possible the practice of sharing of good examples of work of the different cities.
Through the contributions of partners with experience in this area in particular (cultural and artistic revitalization of historic centres), and reflection to develop around these themes, will be sought to develop, adapt, create and implement working systems common to the partners involved, cementing the partnership and promoting knowledge.

Target groups:
- The population of the Historic Centre of the partner Cities;
- The population of the Cities;
- All who want to be surprised by cultural events in a historic environment.

Expected results
- Develop the capacity of attraction of the historic centres of the partner towns;
- Underline the European dimension of culture;
- Promote the meeting of different forms of art present in Europe;
- Create an artistic network among artists and art companies;

Work Plan
Starting date: 2016
Final date: 31st of December 2018.
Duration: 32 Month.
Programme: 3 cycles of programing.
Global Investment: 4 Million Euros.

Deadline for expression of interest in joining the partnership: 2014, December, 31.

Artigianelli Institute, an Italian school for graphic arts and communication.
We would be very interested in participating in a School twinning.
Our school is in Trento, an Italian city located in Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (near lake Garda).
For several years, the Institute has encouraged his students to be open to European culture because we are aware that the encounter with other cultures is an opportunity in both human and professional terms.
Our aim is to initially involve only a small number of student (5 or 6) to facilitate and stimulate the integration in a new cultural environment; we are seeking partners that could introduce our student either in new school environments or in world of work. The accommodation would be by host families.
We would like to know if you are interested in starting a twinning with us.
In return we will accommodate students using English to communicate in the school lessons and we offer also the opportunity to attend an internship related to graphic design (although students should speak Italian).
Our Institute cares about the peculiarity of the student and we pay particularly attention to the personal growth as well as the education and we would like to find partners with similar educational values and beliefs.
We really appreciate your engagement in the social field and we are interested also in participating in some of your volunteer activities during our stay.
The possible period for us to visit is in February March 2015 for a period of about three weeks; students will attend the third class (16 years).
Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss the possibility of working together.
The idea behind this agreement is a win-win principle, that is that we have costless student exchange, because in Italy we can host your students in our families and provide them everything they need, the same should apply to students coming to your Institution.
Our school is also very interested in working together with other similar schools in an “Erasmus+” project.
