We are Teatro Metaphora

A little bit about us

Teatro Metaphora – Associação de Amigos das Artes is a non-profit association, which was founded in 2009 on Madeira island, Portugal. Since then, the organization develops cultural, educational, and environmental activities for the benefit of the community’s development.

The organization’s activities are an essential part of the overall strategy for Madeira to be a creative community, and the organization itself a meeting point for innovation and change, aimed at strengthening the excellence of our island.
