Natural persons and legal entities can donate part of their Income Tax due next year. Be a Videobrasil supporter and friend and help maintain Galpão VB’s facilities, activities, and projects

Associação Cultural Videobrasil is a non-profit organization established 33 years ago. It relies on partnership and support from other organizations and companies to hold an international contemporary art festival every two years; maintain the Videobrasil Collection—the largest video art collection in Latin America today—through restoration, conservation, research, dissemination, and activation actions; create exhibitions and travelling shows; produce publications on contemporary art and culture; support film and documentary-making; and foster artist residency programs.

With the opening of its Galpão VB venue in 2015, Videobrasil now maintains a brick-and-mortar space designed to permanently activate its collection’s artworks, featuring a packed schedule of exhibitions and public program activities including seminars, courses, workshops, book launches, and film premieres.

We need your support and contribution in order to maintain Galpão VB’s facilities and activities throughout 2017.

Associação Cultural Videobrasil’s Annual Action Plan has been approved under Brazil’s Federal Culture Incentive Law—aka the Rouanet Law. This means we are eligible to receive funds from natural persons and legal entities anywhere in Brazil. Those funds will be deducted from donors’ income taxes the following year.
