The venue of the EFAS 2019 is the Culturgest. It was created in 1993, immediately after the completion of the new CGD head office building, being designed to operate as a cultural centre.
In 2007 the company’s statutes were altered and Culturgest became a cultural foundation, the Fundação Caixa Geral de Depósitos – Culturgest.
Since its opening in 1993, Culturgest has organized and presented an extensive programme
of contemporary dance, theatre, music, opera, cinema, visual arts exhibitions, conferences, symposia, workshops and other cultural activities.
An Education Service is also at work. In parallel to this, Culturgest functions as a service
provider, hiring out spaces for the holding of concerts, performances, conferences, meetings or other events. It also seeks to establish close ties of cooperation with schools, universities and other training institutes.
It is located in the centre of Lisbon and most hotels are within walking distance.
