The Directorate-General for the Arts (DGARTES) is a central department of the Ministry of Culture. The mission of DGARTES is to coordinate and carry out arts support policies and foster institutional partnerships. The core objectives of DGARTES include: to support independent cultural agents, to correct regional asymmetries and social inequalities through the endorsement of the effective decentralisation of cultural activities, to actively promote the internationalisation of Portuguese arts and artists, to divulge the works of artists and interpreters through publications in various types of media and to encourage innovation and experimentation in the field of the arts. This is part of a comprehensive strategy that aims to support artistic creation and dissemination, the development of new audiences and increased international cooperation and exchange.
