The Serralves Foundation intends to remain a leading institution in addressing the Creative Industries, via reflection, debate and trendsetting regarding key issues for the sector, as well as enhancement of the respective support ecosystem.
In this context, Serralves positions itself as an open, multidisciplinary collaborative platform, that aims to foster experimentation of ideas and projects, driving innovation and internationalization processes in the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI's).
The Foundation aims to strengthen its role in stimulating and articulating the Creative Economy at the regional, national and international level, acting as a forum for reflection and dialogue within the ICC's, and acting as an agent within the Region’s Innovation Ecosystem, creating and exploring new creative contexts, territorial dynamics and formation of audiences for Contemporary Art, Education and Environment.
During 2013 and 2014, INSERRALVES has continued its repositioning process as a support platform for the Cultural and Creative Industries (ICC's).
These have been years of focusing and consolidation of activity, as well and designing and structuring future projects and partnerships. There has also been continuation of counselling activities for entrepreneurs included within the existing incubation programme.
Serralves remains committed to consolidation of a Creative Industries cluster in the North Region.
