Gatilho

There are also local associations, such as Gatilho – Association for Local Artistic and Cultural Development, that among other activities, promote the practice and diffusion of music. Gatilho was created on October 12, 2013, along with the publication of its related fanzine, intent on offering an alternative cultural agenda to what is usually provided by the municipality. They have programmed activities in the fields of literature, music, exhibitions and documentary cinema, where they integrate the work of local artists alongside that of outside authors. Gatilho has also a regular schedule of concerts at the association’s headquarters, works with the city’s Animation Cinema Festival in their management of band performances and school workshops, and also collaborates with Há Fest!, also in the production of workshops.
