Which maintains a permanent program of rehearsals, theatrical performances, events, concerts, festivals, soirees, exchanges, workshops, courses, exhibitions, performances, cinema, and art environmental education, with a community library and a thrift store, offering all activities free of charge.


historical background

Located inside Parque Novo Anilinas in Cubatão, Galpão Cultural was an underutilized small warehouse that used to present unsanitary conditions. Due to the lack of cultural places in the city, three theater collectives organized and presented to the city government a project to revitalize the space for cultural activities. In January 2017, they obtained permission to occupy and transform the abandoned property into the main cultural space in Cubatão.
The restoration lasted three months, among cleanings and massive group efforts. Supported through donations of saves from Coletivo 302, some local commerce finances, institutional partnerships, voluntary contributions, and own resources, the costs could be were financed. Affectionately opened on March 5, 2017, it originally served as a pocket theater, rehearsal, and workshops room. Over time, it found its mission and resized itself beyond the physical space, creating an environment for artistic experimentation, a network of exchanges, meeting of diversities, construction of political thoughts, hosting cultural events. Among many of these events, the most important of them are Proac, APAA, Ponto Mis, Curta Santos, Unesco, Sesc Performance Platform, Cubatão Theater Festival, and others, involving a collaborative web from Cubatão, from Baixada Santista, Metropolitan Region of ABC and São Paulo.

In 2018 Galpão Cultural was recognized as a point of culture by the standards established in the Cultura Viva Law (13,018 / 2014), and just over three years of occupation, it is estimated that approximately 10,000 people were directly impacted by its actions, with all activities carried out free of charge.
