Culture was the theme of the Lisbon Metropolitan Council held in Sesimbra

The letter of intent for culture in the Lisbon metropolitan area was the starting point for a wide-ranging discussion on the cultural potential of the entire region, which involved the municipalities present at the meeting of the Lisbon Metropolitan Council, held at the Conde Ferreira Auditorium in Sesimbra on the morning of March 30.

Breaking down cultural boundaries in the territory and networking culture, uniting communities and celebrating collaborative dynamics, is one of the principles of the charter of intentions for culture in the Lisbon metropolitan area, which is being built by the AML in partnership with its 18 municipalities.

The meeting also discussed the "Culture in a Network" conference, where the charter will be presented and signed by all the municipalities in the Lisbon metropolitan area.

The conference will take place on April 19 in Oeiras, in five venues: the Eunice Muñoz Municipal Auditorium, the Verney Municipal Bookshop-Gallery, the Palácio do Egipto Cultural Center, the Oeiras Municipal Market and the São Julião da Barra Fort. Cultural management in municipalities, the relationship between culture and education, tourism, heritage and the arts will also be the subject of in-depth discussions with specialists of recognized merit.

The Metropolitan Council is the decision-making body of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, in accordance with the statute of inter-municipal entities.

It is made up of the mayors of the 18 municipalities that make up the metropolitan area (Alcochete, Almada, Amadora, Barreiro, Cascais, Lisboa, Loures, Mafra, Moita, Montijo, Odivelas, Oeiras, Palmela, Seixal, Sesimbra, Setúbal, Sintra and Vila Franca de Xira). It is chaired by Carla Tavares (Mayor of Amadora), with Hélder Sousa Silva (Mayor of Mafra) and Frederico Rosa (Mayor of Barreiro) as vice-chairs.
