Sara Machado

Managing Director
CUMPLICIDADES - Lisbon International Contemporary Dance Festival

I´m a Culture lover based in Lisbon, Portugal. I´ve graduated from the University of Porto in Information Science and obtained an Erasmus scholarship in Denmark. I´ve continued my studies with the Master of Cultural Management at the Carlos III University of Madrid (Spain). In Madrid, I´ve worked at "Festival de Escena Contemporánea" (Madrid / Spain) as communication coordinator. At the Ministry of Culture of Spain, I was uncharged of grants monitoring. At ECF - European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), I was privileged enough to extensively develop a deep knowledge regarding the artistic mobility and cultural cooperation in wider Europe. For more than five years, I was Managing Director of EIRA, an independent cultural structure based in Lisbon. There, I got specialized in internationalization strategies, enabling tours in Europe, Asia, Africa and America whilst building a bubbling network. In Brussels, I´ve developed a research project on Cultural Diplomacy at Pearle * Live Performance Europe. Nowadays, I share my time and energy between two beautiful projects: CUMPLICIDADES - International Festival of Contemporary Dance of Lisbon and PERFORMING ARTS PORTUGUAL. In the meantime, I hope to finish soon the master’s degree in political science and International Relations.
