gnration is a structure managed by the municipal company teatro circo de braga, e.m, s.a.

Teatro Circo de Braga, EM, S.A. is a century-old company that, throughout most of its existence has been dedicated to the management of Theatro Circo. Created by private initiative, in the ’80s the Municipality of Braga acquired the majority of the shares and, years later, its remaining, turning it into a company 100% owned by public capital and the oldest local company in the country. Nowadays, it assumes itself as an important instrument at the service of the city for the implementation of its cultural policy, working in complementarity with the Municipality of Braga. It is responsible for the implementation of the Braga Media Arts project, within the scope of the attribution to Braga in 2017 of the category of Unesco Creative City in this domain. It was also responsible for coordinating Braga’s application to become the European Capital of Culture 2027. At the end of 2020, the company further extended its scope of action, starting to manage gnration, a national reference structure in the fields of contemporary music and the relationship between art and technology.
