Home > What we do

CTL is an independent company that operates different aspects of cultural industries. We own and manage Musicbox, a music venue, and Povo, a restaurant and bar, both offering an overall program that echoes CTL’s interdisciplinary approach to the arts. While holding a large number of concerts, Musicbox constantly provides a space for a variety of other cultural events. Povo has a regular cultural programme focused on the celebration of the written, spoken and sung word and offers a year round artist in residency program. Both venues allow us to offer an integrated model: we support and promote artists, engage with new projects, handle ticketing, bar and every aspect of production operations. Our business management model and experience enable us to constantly create and execute new and original cultural projects and content, from music, literary and multidisciplinary events to original editorial content and consulting services in the areas of cultural management and production.


CTL is the owner and project manager of Musicbox, a live music venue and Povo, a restaurant and bar. Both located at the heart of Cais do Sodré, one of the most vibrant and creative districts in Lisbon and a new epicenter for creative and cultural industries, they are at the centre of CTL’s activity, enabling the company to extend its project portfolio and to pursue its mission.
