Overview
More
Museu Vale, opened in October 15th 1998, is an initiative of the Vale Foundadtion, an institution that performs actions, projects and social programs in regions where Vale operates, in order to contribute to the territorial development and strengthen the people and communities, while respecting local cultural identities. Vale Foundadtion believes that investing in equipment and cultural programs is an opportunity for territorial development, as it strengthens public culture policy and promotes social inclusion - especially of children and young people. Furthermore, participation in cultural activities brings positive impacts for societies and individuals in many dimensions: develops skills and abilities, stimulates creativity, strengthens the self-esteem, stablishes values and opens new possibilities of work and income. Museu Vale is part of the commitment of Vale Foundadtion with the increase of the access to cultural assets, the preservation of local cultural identities and strengthening and valuing Brazilian cultural heritage and memories. With its exhibitions, seminars and art workshops, promotes contact among the diversity of style??, techniques and contemporary aesthetic, encouraging many young people to join the market of artistic-cultural production.
