Launch of UNESCO’s Global Report “Re|Shaping Cultural Policies” in Brazil
The Report assesses the impact of the most recent policies and measures taken around the world to implement the UNESCO 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.
Specifically, it tracks progress on the following four main goals related to the Convention: supporting sustainable systems of governance for culture; achieving a balanced flow of cultural goods and services and increasing the mobility of artists and cultural professionals; integrating culture in sustainable development frameworks; promoting human rights and fundamental freedoms. The Report puts forward a set of policy recommendations and produces new evidence to inform cultural policymaking and advance creativity for development.
The launch event is organized in cooperation with Ministry of Culture of Brazil and Itaú Cultural.
The public presentation will be opened by H.E. Sérgio Sá Leitão, Minister of Culture of Brazil, H.E Pablo Avelluto, Secreatary of Culture of Argentina, Eduardo Saron, Director of Itaú Cultural and Marlova Noleto, Director of UNESCO Brazil. It will also include two roundtable discussions focusing on the mobility of artists and the book industry in the Latin America and Caribbean region.
