What is this?

A DETAILED MAP TO PROMOTE THE MAJOR CULTURAL EVENTS IN THE 92 CITIES IN THE STATE OF RIO DE JANEIRO

That is the idea behind this Rio de Janeiro State Culture Map, a project undertaken by the State Department of Culture, sponsored by Petrobras and produced by Diadorim Ideias.

In 2011 and 2013, caravans comprised of journalists, photographers and video directors covered 15 thousand kilometers of territory in the State of Rio de Janeiro in an unprecedented effort in cataloging the most important cultural expressions of the most diverse nature, such as cultural centers, traditional festivals, tangible and intangible heritage, as well as artists, characters, groups, and bands featured throughout the state.

The result is the bilingual portal on the Internet that has 3.5 thousand entries, 8 thousand images and 120 documentary videos about the state’s culture, updated periodically. Now, the Map gets a new format, through apps for cell phones and tablets, sponsored by Faperj.

For the map to continue and gain more importance, though, it is critical that you, artist, cultural producer, cultural agent, manager, student, tourist - first of all, a citizen of Rio - collaborate with information on your city.

On Rio de Janeiro State Culture Map, you can search for attractions by category and municipality, and also find service information, videos, photo galleries and location maps integrated to Google Maps.

The Culture Map is the first step to fill the existing information gap about Rio's popular culture, state-wise. Let's keep adding more and more content on events, popular artists, institutions, and traditions of the 92 cities. Rio de Janeiro has a history and a strong cultural tradition. Preserving, promoting, and disseminating it are the pillars of this Map.

Let's keep going!
