Far beyond the 11 days of its annual program, the FESTIVAL ARTES VERTENTES performs work throughout the year in Tiradentes. We are concerned about being always present with the community of friends, artists, students, teachers and collaborators, proposing encouragement, dialogue and reflection through art. We hope this message finds you in good health and safety. Aware of the importance of preserving the life and health of everyone, we know that avoiding crowds is essential at this time. It was precisely this reason that led us to postpone the dates of Artes Vertentes, traditionally held in September, for the period between November 26 and December 6, 2020.

After having carried out 8 beautiful editions in Tiradentes, presenting a high artistic level programming in the different languages contemplated by the festival - music, visual arts, literature, cinema and performing arts -, the Artes Vertentes team will spare no effort to adapt to the moment, reformulating the festival in order to encourage dialogues and exchanges of cultural experiences, taking the necessary care with everyone's health. The Artes Vertentes Cultural Action did not stop – it reinvented itself so that our students were not deprived of weekly classes and activities and could continue receiving artistic impulses during the entire period of physical isolation that we went through. Since mid-March, the project's teachers and educators have brought the pedagogical content to virtual platforms, conducting online classes, organizing and producing content for our students through our digital channels and offering individualized follow-up over the past few months.  

All this would not be possible without the generous collaboration and support of the AAFAV – Association of Friends of the Festival Artes Vertentes – a non-profit association based in Tiradentes, which is always committed to creating possibilities that bring culture, education and art closer together, making the spirit of Artes Vertentes pulse throughout the year in Tiradentes and also in the daily lives of children and teenagers who participate in our sociocultural project.

Today, more than ever, the contribution of friends and partners, through donations and sponsorships, is essential for us to maintain our activities. Therefore, we are immensely grateful for the faithful and generous support that Festival Artes Vertentes receives from the 70 members who currently make up this association.  

We would like to invite you to join AAFAV and be a part of this transformative work. Together Strands Arts!
