There were 329 attractions broadcast online, surpassing 200 hours of programming, with more than 2,300 people working to organize the festival. The impetus for the resumption of the cultural sector was the main focus of the Virada Cultural de Belo Horizonte 2021, carried out by the Municipal Department of Culture and the Municipal Foundation of Culture, in partnership with the Periférico Institute. Due to the period of social isolation, the cultural sector was one of the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Virada Cultural, in its online format, supported artists, producers and technicians, in addition to giving visibility to spaces in the city that are rarely used as stages.
