Instituto Odeon is a private non-profit cultural association whose mission is to promote citizenship and socio-educational development through cultural projects. The Institute was formed as an expansion of Odeon Companhia Teatral, an organisation created in 1998.
Having been registered as a Social Organization (OS) in Rio de Janeiro, in 2012 Instituto Odeon partnered with City Hall in the management of the Museu de Arte do Rio – MAR. With the signing of the management agreement, Odeon’s experience in the cultural sector is now utilised to manage one of the most important pieces of equipment in the revitalisation of the city’s port area.
The partnership signed between the City Hall and the Insituto Odeon will ensure, in administrative and conceptual terms, the necessary conditions for the full development of the Museu de Arte do Rio programme. The management model excels in its agility of processes, transparency and efficiency, contributing to the sustainability and longevity of the cultural transformations brought about by MAR.
