The Culture Secretariat of Mexico City and the Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina agreed to combine their digital information and cultural platforms, in order to offer a wider range of artistic and cultural expressions from both countries. With this agreement, the digital platforms Capital Cultural en Nuestra Casa (Capital culture in our home), from the Government of Mexico City, and Cultura en Casa (culture at home), from the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, will jointly offer extensive programming that will house the various disciplines that make up the cultural life of both entities. Both capital cities are part of the Culture Commission of the Organization of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), which allowed for a greater understanding of the most urgent needs in Latin America. Buenos Aires is currently the Ibero-American Capital of Cultures (CIC) and Mexico City will be the CIC 2021. Both have been designated by the Union of Ibero-American Capital Cities (UCCI) in recognition of their participation and promotion of culture.
