Simão José Silva
In 1984, Fundação Cultural Cataguases was born, with the goal of promoting social actions to encourage culture for the local community, broadening Cataguases – MG’s and the region’s artistic horizons.
Currently, under the moniker of Fundação Simão José Silva – an homage to its mastermind – it manages the Casa de Cultura Simão, a highly regarded entity located in the city of Cataguases that fosters important cultural and artistic projects.
With BAUMINAS Group’s and Minas Gerais’ state law for the incentive of culture as sponsors, Casa de Cultura Simão’s schedule moves an audience of about 3500 people per year, of varied age, through its activities.
Casa de Cultura Simão promotes a great variety of events, of which theatrical performances, music concerts and art workshops are highlights. It also offers classes in the Oficina de Formação de Atores (Actors Training Workshop), a course in the scenic arts that involves hundreds of students, mainly those attending public schools.
