Don’t know what to do in the city? Every month, Fundação Cultural de Curitiba (FCC) prepares and publishes the Guia Faça, Curta, Check, a true menu of attractions in the city’s cultural spaces. And best of all, the programming is mostly free.
Through the link, those interested can check the October schedule. On the FCC website, the file will be updated on Monday (10/31).
The Guide is divided into areas of interest to the public: cinema, visual arts, circus, theater, visits and workshops, dance, music and literature. Easy to consult, the guide is available in an interactive PDF for you to choose the language that interests you most and consult the attractions available, by day and time.
“We invite the population in general, and in a special way the employees of the City Hall of Curitiba, to know our programming”, says the president of the Cultural Foundation of Curitiba, Ana Cristina de Castro.
Within the categories are presented events such as workshops, films, plays and several other activities to enjoy alone or with the family. The guide also includes the address, rating and value of the attraction.
The guide is curated by experts in each of the areas, precisely to select the best activities. The guide can be accessed on the Fundação Cultural de Curitiba website or on instagram (@fccuritiba). In addition, the weekly guide is shared on the Curitiba City Hall website.

In addition to borrowing books, there are reading circles, storytelling, literary creation workshops and much more.

The space maintains a schedule of concerts throughout the year, bringing together big names and important groups such as Camerata Antiqua, the Coro, Orquestra À Base de Corda and the Orquestra À Base de Sopro.
