On 29 March 2015, some of the main regional and national media outlets marked the birth of the culture factory that once was an alcohol factory. In a predictably promising future, turned to creation and art creators, the Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center emerges with an irrefutable mission: observe, stimulate, disseminate and produce through transdisciplinary action in the fields of visual, audiovisual/multimedia and performing arts.

In its productive/creative mission, which today is a mission of knowledge, culture and critical mass, we regard the building as a functional continuity that runs through history and that was determined and placed at the service of the human structures headquartered there.
