We are thrilled to announce that Cante Alentejano Museum has been honored with the prestigious Museography Work prize at the Prémios APOM, presented by the Portuguese Association of Museology (APOM). This accolade recognizes the efforts put forth by Cante Alentejano Interpretive Center, which opened its doors in August 2021.

Cante Alentejano Interpretive Center, nestled within the “Casa do Cante,” received this esteemed award during a ceremony held on May 27th, which took place at the “Academia Militar” auditorium in Amadora, in collaboration with the “Museu Militar Lisboa.”

APOM Awards: Celebrating Excellence in Museology

The APOM Awards, hosted annually, serve as a platform to honor and celebrate excellence in various sectors and activities across 32 different categories. The recognition bestowed upon the Cante Alentejano Interpretive Center is a testament to its dedication to preserving and presenting the rich heritage of “Cante Alentejano.”

The Visionary Collaboration Behind the Win

This remarkable achievement is a testament to the collaborative spirit that brought the Cante Alentejano Museum to life. João Borges Design Atelier led the way in designing the museum’s aesthetics, museography, and content. However, it was the synergy with GEMA, responsible for the multimedia project, that truly made this endeavor exceptional.

About Cante Alentejano Museum

Cante Alentejano Museum stands as a beacon of cultural preservation and education, exclusively dedicated to “Cante Alentejano.” The museum’s inauguration last year marked a significant milestone in its mission to bring the traditional art of “Cante” to a broader audience. Housed within the “Casa do Cante,” the museum combines an exhibition gallery and an auditorium, creating an interactive environment for both physical and digital experiences.

Cante Alentejano Museum is not just a repository of history; it’s a dynamic space that bridges the gap between tradition and modernity, providing visitors with a comprehensive understanding of “Cante” through a blend of physical and digital support.

This recognition from Prémios APOM is a testament to the commitment and dedication of the Cante Alentejano Museum to preserving and promoting the unique cultural heritage of Alentejo’s traditional singing.
