Our national identities are based on a common cultural heritage, an essential instrument to understand the present and to plan for the future. Culture drives economic and social growth, innovation and national cohesion, and is essential for nurturing the human spirit.
To create a better society, we have to get together to make sure everyone has sustained access to high-quality cultural events.
The Teatro Espressivo Cultural Association (ACTE, Spanish acronym) is a nonprofit organization that aims to promote and stage high-quality cultural activities, providing urban and rural audiences with an innovative and creative offer, and making sure that more and more people have access to it.
