Since Wednesday, December 9, the applications for the Theater Support Scholarship to be attributed by the Municipality of Loulé to the associative and artistic milieu (agents and structures with legal personality and headquartered in the municipality) are officially open, namely the amateur and professional projects in the area of Theater, in the total amount of 75 thousand euros for the year 2021, which reveals an increase of 25 thousand euros in global financing compared to the previous year. The decision was taken today at a Chamber meeting, and the deadline ends on January 9, 2021.
In Loulé, the Theater Support Scholarship was resumed in 2014: in the municipality, it is an important instrument of support on the part of the Municipality to the theatrical creation, since it focuses on the presentation of unpublished plays, and which, on the other hand, has allowed to the amateur and professional groups based in Loulé to obtain effective support for the creative component.
The scholarship is also an important way of decentralizing cultural practices and dynamics in the municipality of Loulé, given that there is a commitment by each amateur group to present three shows, two of which must be held in parishes in the municipality. At the same time, the external promotion and circulation of Louletan professional theatrical structures is stimulated through the obligation to hold two presentations in other municipalities in the Algarve that are part of the Rede Azul – Algarve Theater Network, of which Cineteatro Louletano is a member.
Finally, the Theater Support Scholarship also provides a formative dimension, which gradually contributes to greater artistic qualification and qualification of amateur competitors and their members and projects.
Candidates must submit their proposals to the Municipality of Loulé through the Cineteatro Louletano via e-mail – [email protected] – until January 9, 2021, or send by mail to Cineteatro Louletano, Av. José da Costa Mealha, 8100-501, Loulé, so all applications submitted after that date will be excluded.
