About Capitol Cinema / Summer Theatre

Between 15th of July and 30th of September, Save or Cancel proposes an awareness and sensitization campaign about national cultural heritage, with an application on Capitol Cinema / Summer Theatre, revealing its potential as an independent cultural hub.

100 years after being built, an open call for art projects will activate the collective memory, reintegrate the monument in the public circuit through democratic reinterpretations of urban space as cultural space, while exploring the links between art, nature and the city.


How do we enable the public space as cultural space?

How do we activate the collective memory without narrowing its spectrum?
