National Culture Plan
The National Culture Plan has the objective of shaping public policies on cultural matters from a participatory perspective. Thus, the Plan was based on citizen debates and consultation processes carried out throughout the territory. Citizens involved in cultural issues participated in departmental meetings in which thematic diagnoses were made and proposals and inputs were collected for the Plan. The Faculty of Social Sciences was in charge of making a synthesis of everything compiled to develop the final document, which intends to continue receiving inputs from the citizens, with a view towards the development of a National Law of Culture.
