Since 2003 the Forum Permanente: Art Museums between the public and private realms organizes discursive events by itself or in partnership. Unfortunately, since it is quite expensive, the site just have some events translated into English or even events that were produced in English as the prime language. So, in the english version of the site, there is only a small portion of almost 200 events that we produced or that we were involved in some way all these years. Forum Permanente is pioneer in webcasting events (we have more then 600 videos freely available in the Portuguese site) using internet tools and wide spread possibilities of dissemination. To better understand the mission and objectives of the Forum Permanente and also its "nature", please go to "about". For a better overview of our achievements and activities develop so far, please refer to the Portuguese version of the site.
