The Vale Cultural Institute, in partnership with public and private institutions, supports and develops projects for the protection and promotion of cultural goods – be they buildings, monuments, or entertainment, dances, music, crafts and knowledge – and their memories.

It is involved in emblematic initiatives for Brazil, such as the reconstruction projects of the National Museum, in Rio de Janeiro, and the Ipiranga Museum, in São Paulo. It supports, among other initiatives, the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra and the Inhotim Institute in Minas Gerais.
