Central de Cultura was a cultural funding program of 6 Dutch cultural funds to intensify cultural exchange between The Netherlands and Brazil. The objective of the program was to work on a long-standing and more intensive cultural relationship between Brazil and the Netherlands. The two-year program took place in 2011 and 2012. It’s focus was not on promotion but cultural exchange. This lead to a long-term and equal cooperation for cultural artists in the Netherlands as well as Brazil.

Central de Cultura included all cultural disciplines. The funds that were committed to the program were the Performing Arts Fund NL, Mondriaan Fund, Fund for Cultural Participation, the Netherlands Film Fund, The Dutch Foundation for Literature and The Netherlands Architecture Fund.
