Fórum da Cultura
Fórum da Cultura is one of UFJF’s cultural spaces that allows people of Juiz de Fora to be in contact with fine arts and stage theatre shows, along with the diffusion of folk culture and music. The house was built in 1920 in eclectic stile, with stained glass, staircase and ceilings in hardwood and a neatly made floor. Currently, the place houses the theatre group “Divulgação”, a folk culture museum, an art gallery and the University’s choir. “Divulgação” was established in 1966 and nowadays is organized in three basic production nuclei: the University’s students, high school students and the elderly. Run by professors and academics, the group’s focus is on research in performing arts and has a systematic programming with plays, seminars and other events offered to the community.
