Among these various initiatives one should highlight the Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre (MIC.PT) with the objectives of public service, and many more activities such as the independent label Miso Records, the Miso Studio, the regular programme of commissions, pedagogical actions, creation residencies, the Música Viva Festival, the composition competitions, a prolific action dedicated to the internationalization of Portuguese contemporary music, …

With the opening of O'culto da Ajuda, which also anticipates the celebrations of the 30 years of its continuous activity, Miso Music Portugal initiates a new stage in its existence. The projects, which will be taking place at this new venue will not only be a continuation, but above all a reinforcement of the ideas marking its work, in consonance with an unwavering defense of Art's importance, of freedom in creation and of its solidary and sustainable role in the society.
