It is worth remembering that APCA is supported under the Sustained Support Program of the Directorate-General for the Arts (DG Arts), making it one of the oldest entities in Madeira to receive this funding. One of the topics discussed during the meeting was the fact that APCA is an entity whose funding sources are very diverse, as support from DG Arts represents only 18% of its budgetary universe.

Working in the areas of scientific and cultural knowledge, but also technology, APCA Madeira has designed and developed numerous projects. Its evolution fits, from a more general perspective, with the development of cultural associations and the Madeiran cultural and creative sector recorded in recent decades, growth partly sustained by private partnerships and between the public and private sector. APCA, like the sector in general, has opportunities for growth in the short term, in order to continue the projects mentioned above and challenge its current limits in the strict understanding of the benefit of the community.
