National Council for Culture and Arts
Key objectives of the measure:

The CNCA has developed the "Programme Interculturality and Inclusion of Migrants"[1] directed at migrant minorities, which aims to make visible cultural expressions of migrants and promote that the population of the country can know them. This Programme enables citizens of regions with a high percentage of migrant population can access the cultural offerings of organizations that address issues of interculturality, in order to assess their cultural expressions. Similarly, for the first time it extended to these communities the traditional "Rock Schools Programme", in its "Rock Schools Migrants"[2] version.

[1] This Programme is linked to the Articles 2.1 and 2.3 of the 2005 Convention.
