澳門特別行政區政府文化局 = Cultural Affairs Bureau, Instituto Cultural do Governo da R.A.E.de MacauCitation:
The Cultural Affairs Bureau (former Cultural Institute of Macao) was founded as a public institution on 4 September 1982 under the terms of Decree-Law no. 43/82/M. Its aim was to assist in drafting and implementing the Territory's policies on culture and academic research by organising activities relating to Sino-Portuguese cultural interchange and by disseminating and stimulating an interest in Portuguese language and culture in this part of the world.
In 1989 its Organic Statute underwent an extensive review to bring it into line with an evolving reality, with the alterations enshrined in Decree-Law no. 63/89/M of 25 September and 20/90/M of 14 May.
The Institute continued to maintain its triple role producing draft legislation, providing training in the various arts and promoting cultural events.
Two separate departments were added, the Conservatory and the Academy of Visual Arts (which in 1993 transferred to become part of the Macao Polytechnic Institute) in addition to the Historical Archives and Central Library (previously called the National Library of Macao).
On 19 December 1994, the Institute's organic and administrative structures were again reorganised in an attempt to make these more appropriate to the needs of the transition period. This has made the Cultural Affairs Bureau (former Cultural Institute of Macao) more dynamic and operational in the field of cultural activities and responsive to the goals of administrative modernisation and Increasing localisation of staff.
On 20 July 1998, the Museum of Macao had become a member of the Cultural Affairs Bureau (as stated in Decree-Law no. 31/98/M).http://www.icm.gov.mo/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English, por Portuguese
