    It's the final week of HOBRA, the Olympic cultural programme in Rio de Janeiro. On 31 July the results will be presented to the Brazilian and international public during a large-scale concluding event.
    After their arrival in Rio de Janeiro on July 11 the Dutch HOBRA participants have met their Brazilian partners and presented their work. Up next the group went on a tour through Rio, to get acquainted with the city and each other. On 17 July the official opening of HOBRA took place, in the presence of the Dutch Consul-General in Rio de Janeiro, Arjen Uijterlinde, and the Culture Secretary of the city, Júnior Perim. Despite the pressure to show a finished product on July 31, the HOBRA participants have given public lectures and workshops during their stay.

    On Sunday 31 July the concluding event takes place from 1 pm till 7 pm in the Centro Cultural Municipal Laurinda Santos Lobo and the Museum Casa de Benjamin Constant in Rio de Janeiro. All ten Dutch - Brazilian duos will present their final work.

    Between 11 and 31 July 2016, the Dutch and Brazilian artists and creative professionals, the interim presentations and the final event in Rio de Janeiro can be followed on hobra.art.br, the Facebook page hobra2016 and via the hashtag #HOBRA.

    A remarkable initiative
    The cultural programme HOBRA is a collaborative effort by the six public culture funds: Performing Arts Fund/Dutch Performing Arts, Cultural Participation Fund, Mondriaan Fund, Netherlands Film Fund, Dutch Foundation for Literature, Creative Industries Fund NL, and DutchCulture, the strategic advice agency for international cultural cooperation, creating activities worldwide. The programme is carried out in partnership with several Brazilian cultural organisations, including the international theatre festival TEMPO. This is the first time that partners from the two countries work together on this scale to create a cultural programme in the context of the Olympic Games.
