For Vale, living the culture enables people to broaden their knowledge, their world view and creates new perspectives for the future. In this sense, for almost two decades the company has been investing and seeking to foster the multiple Brazilian cultural manifestations, in all their diversity. With the purpose of enhancing Vale’s performance in culture, valuing heritage, democratizing access, and fostering artistic expressions, the Vale Cultural Institute was created in 2020.

Its performance – in its own museums and cultural centers, in the preservation and valorization of material and immaterial heritages and in the multiple artistic manifestations that it performs or promotes – is sustained by the vision that culture is an instrument of social transformation, capable of generating a positive impact on people’s lives and building a legacy for future generations.

The Governance Structure of the Vale Cultural Institute is composed of: Strategic Council, Fiscal Council, Executive Board and a panel of experts.
