Ação Cooperativista

Ação Cooperativista was born on April 14 in the context of the covid-19 (2020) pandemic, a period when the arts and cultural sector were dramatically affected. The public health crisis has worsened and made unsustainable the fragility and precariousness of the professionals in the sector, that is constantly under-budgeted, unable to fulfill the constitutional responsibility to defend and promote culture as a right of all.

Ação Cooperativista is an informal group that practices a collaborative, non-hierarchical working methodology, that seeks to unite -valuing diversity- the workers of the arts and culture in Portugal. As the name implies, it is organised as a cooperative organisation, combining the word cooperative with the activist, with culture and the arts at the center of its intervention.
