Cultural Center Carpintarias de São Lázaro in Lisbon
Carpintarias de São Lázaro is the new Cultural Center in the city of Lisbon, which opened in 2017. The mission at the Center is to promote Contemporary culture and arts, from Visual Arts to Music, Theatre and Dance, Cinema and Gastronomy, in the heart of the Portuguese capital.
The Cultural Center proposes integration through culture, where creativity, innovation and multidisciplinarity are combined to create the opportunity to bring together people, communities and knowledge.
The Center is located on Colina de Santana, near to Martim Moniz and Mouraria, Lisbon's historic area, where over the years a vibrant multi-cultural reality has been growing into the traditional Lisbon neighborhoods.
The program of Carpintarias de São Lázaro focuses mainly on the various cultural areas, encouraging their crossing in a perspective of contamination.
Carpintarias de São Lázaro’s program also reserves a space for presentation and debate from the perspective of how creativity and innovation helps to create opportunities for a fairer and more sustainable development of our contemporary society.
Cultural Center closed for now due to COVID-19
At the beginning of March, the Cultural Center Carpintarias de São Lázaro, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, was forced to suspend its entire program from April to September 2020, as well as were other institutions and cultural spaces in Portugal.
