Furnas supports, sponsors and promotes many actions which focus on helping to build Brazil's cultural identity, adding value to popular culture and promoting social inclusion.

Recognizing and valuing culture are fundamental factors in the wider development of society: culture goes hand-in-hand with other social and environmental issues, creating basic platforms and giving more effective and widespread meaning to a new concept of development and sustainability.
Eletrobras Furnas Cultural Space - Culture for a new era

The Furnas Cultural Space, now called the Furnas Cultural Space, located at the company's head office in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro, was inaugurated in November 2003 with the Portinari Images of Brazil exhibition. The Space is a center for art, through which the company increases access to culture, opening up the gallery for both new and recognized artists. Its exhibitions always include some aspect of social responsibility.

Furnas supports, sponsors and promotes many actions which focus on helping to build Brazil's cultural identity, adding value to popular culture and social inclusion, alongside regional cultures.

Recognizing and valuing culture are fundamental to the wider development of society: culture goes hand-in-hand with other social and environmental issues, creating basic platforms and giving more effective and widespread meaning to a new concept of development and sustainability.
