The history of culture is also what was done so that this history could happen. To the added value that culture is said to bring, one should argue that, more than just adding, it structures and anticipates. In the organisation of cities, in the defence of values, in the sharing of knowledge and identities, in social, individual and collective transformation. In Curso Livre de Cultura, we talk to protagonists, analysts and artists about how another discourse to talk about culture can be constructed: one that frees from the opacity of numbers and speeches and transforms its experience into a complementary experience, where economy and society cease to be categories that limit what is fruition, reflection and action. The sessions, with a variable model in terms of the number of guests and presentation methods, include a lesson and a context, carried out by specialists with work published or developed in the chosen theme, and a debate or interview, in collaboration with journalists.
