The Cultural Council was created in 2012. Idalina Sardinha chaired it until 2017. The Cultural Council based its activity on the dynamics created by a group of Clubs that promoted tributes to different individuals, conferences, talks and book launches. Follow all the activities here.

The Clubs promoted by the Cultural Council developed their activity in areas as diverse as cinema, literature and brainstorming sessions, manifesting themselves through initiatives sometimes promoted by their mentors or associated with other individuals or organisations. The activity developed by these Clubs has enabled new and fruitful alliances, not only within the academic fabric but also in the interaction with the surrounding community.
