Praia, Aug 29 (Inforpress) – Groups and individuals who want to finance cultural and creative projects for 2019 must submit their applications by October 31, informed the Minister of Culture, Abraão Vicente.

Speaking to the press on Tuesday, on the sidelines of the “on-site” accompaniment of the dive work carried out in the bay of the Cidade Velha, for underwater research linked to the CONCHA project, Abraão Vicente recalled that the Ministry of Culture launches an annual call for support in which the groups have to deliver by October 31 of the previous year their projects to apply and to be developed.

“The projects funded in 2018 have all been disbursed and financed, we are in the process of monitoring and implementing projects and financing”, said the minister of Culture and Creative Industries, adding that the bidding has already been “launched since the last week”.

Abraão Vicente also informed that until January it will announce the groups and  projects that will be financed from 2019.

“What is very important here to lay down is that the Ministry of Culture can not react to projects of requests for support in which the artist asks for support for the next week or next month. We work with some predictability”, said the minister to whom groups who want to see their projects being funded for next year must deliver them properly formulated.
