5 SENSES - CULTURAL PROGRAMMING NETWORK
Designed to promote cultural programming and artistic network production, 5 Sentidos was initially created by five cultural structures in the country (in 2009), and was later extended to 10 partners (in 2013). This network of cultural programming emerged with the intention of establishing a closer collaboration between the various Theaters based on the exchange of knowledges, processes and work experiences. A strategy that aims to strengthen the performance of all partners and to support artists and respond to their needs through concerted actions in the field of co-production, presentation circuits, residences, artistic accompaniment and international partnerships.

Centro Cultural Vila Flor (Guimarães)
Teatro Micaelense (Ponta Delgada)

5 SENSES - STUDY ABOUT THE CULTURAL PROGRAMMING NETWORK
The programming network 5 SENTIDOS provides the STUDY ON THE CULTURAL PROGRAMMING NETWORK prepared by the Center for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra. The study analyzes the activity of the 5 Sentidos network, focusing on the period between 2005 and 2009, during which it benefited from funding under the support measure for Cultural Equipment Networks - Cultural Network Programming (Regional Operational Plans - QREN 2007- 2013).
PeThroughout the history of the constitution of 5 Senses and analyzing in detail the collaborative activity among the 5 Theaters during the period considered, the study probes more broadly the virtues, challenges and dilemmas of the work of cultural cooperation in network. It is, therefore, a study that, focusing on the specific case of the 5 Senses, seeks simultaneously to ponder the processes, dynamics and critical dimensions that emerge from the organization of cultural network activity. In this context, it pays particular attention to the constraints imposed by the specific model of financial support (the support measure for Cultural Equipment Networks). If the survey of the 5 Senses activity proves to be very relevant to the understanding of contemporary processes of reorganization of cultural and artistic activity in Portugal, the evaluation of the public financing model through the NSRF proves to be decisive for the question of how policies Public works in the cultural field, especially those aimed at promoting cultural networking work.
