São Vicente / CNAD Rehabilitation: “This building will represent a new moment for culture” – minister

Mindelo, Feb 4 (Inforpress) – Rehabilitation and construction of an annex of the National Center of Crafts and Design (CNAD) started today with the presence of the Minister of Culture, who considered that the building will represent a “new moment” in the culture.

Abraão Vicente, who presided over the “symbolic act” to mark the beginning of the works, this Monday in Mindelo, said he wants people who visit São Vicente to see that there is a “great center” dedicated to the arts, and with two buildings side by side, “one representing the past and the other one the future”.

This rehabilitation, which, according to the new conception, will no longer have the protective walls in front and in the courtyard, in an idea, according to the same source, of “freedom” and of a “new height” in the country, in which “the houses of the State and of the landlord also come to belong to the town”.

“We want to liberate the city and remove all the walls in cultural centers, so that the sites that were only for research and collection become an open site to the city”, said the ruler, adding that this building will represent a “new moment” for culture, for creative and cultural agents and for the city of Mindelo.
