Cemig Sponsors

.Encouragement of culture through social, sports and cultural projects.

Cemig is the biggest Culture promoter in Minas Gerais and one of the biggest in the country. Through cultural, sports and social projects, it estimates to impact more than 3 million people and reach more than 50 locations in the state. By uniting the volume of resources invested with the reach of Minas Gerais and Brazilian society, added to the cultural wealth and talent promoted, we glimpse a unique opportunity to develop structural and strategic programs that are organized based on values, concepts and transparent criteria, coupled with the company’s mission.

Project selection is carried out by a team made up of CEMIG employees and renowned professionals from the contemplated areas.

The cultural sponsorship policy, called PLATAFORMA ENERGIA DA CULTURA presents a transversal axis, which is the systematization and availability of contents, methodologies, project references and initiatives in art, culture and education. Thus, 04 main axes of action have been defined:

  • CULTURE AND EDUCATION: in this axis are the projects and actions that seek to create bridges of contact between the cultural diversity of Minas Gerais, the teaching spaces (formal or informal) and the transmission (personal or mediated by technology).
  • HERITAGE AND MEMORY: integrates the projects financed in the area of museums and memory in addition to sponsoring the large artistic groups that represent the intangible cultural heritage of Minas Gerais.
  • INNOVATION AND EXPERIMENTATION: an axis dedicated to projects that work in the field of creativity, subjectivity, perception, art as experience. They seek the enlargement of the subject’s space-time from contact with situations, works, activities that affect the senses, promoting desires, fantasies, dreams, apprehension of knowledge or simple emotion.
  • CIRCUITS AND FESTIVALS: An axis that encourages the circulation of cultural production in Minas Gerais. It encompasses both projects that seek interiorization and those that foster groups from all over the state territory. Besides the events, it is accompanied by indicators of the various aspects of social life that involve the cultural project, among them the local impact, job generation, visibility in the media, indexes that show the potential for economic dynamization and social development of cultural actions.

Sponsorships are granted by means of public notices, held by CEMIG and periodically disclosed on the company’s networks.

The partnership between CEMIG’s Culture and Incentive Management area and the State Secretariats of Culture and Tourism, and the Education Department of Minas Gerais has ensured greater reach, democratization and assertiveness in sponsorships, supporting strategic demands, fostering the creative economy of Minas Gerais, promoting social development and adding values to both the company and the sponsored.
