Action Plan for Cultural Dialogue and Cooperation between Brazil and Uruguay
The parties agree to set up a binational cultural entity, whose foremost task will be the preparation and coordination of programmes, projects and actions, which focus on cultural diversity and citizenship starting from the Brazilian Culture Points and the Uruguayan Culture Factories and MEC Centres experiences.
The parties are committed to support the Cultural Borders Movement (“Movimiento Cultural Fronteras”), which was created in 2010 and involves about 20 Uruguayan and Brazilian municipalities, in order to develop joint activities and to carry out public cultural policies for the border region of Brazil and Uruguay.
The parties are committed to encourage binational arts and youth meetings and to draw up an internship programme for youth groups and colleges of art and culture, which work on citizenship programmes. (http://www.mec.gub.uy/innovaportal/file/10459/1/plan_final_cultura.pdf)
Challenges identified in the implementation of this measure:
Given the recent signature of the agreement no information is available so far.
The plan has set out to prepare a working agenda, which will define its objectives, strategies, targets and results, giving priority to joint actions of border municipalities of both countries and draw up and develop the organizational and legal structures of the new binational body by establishing its mission, statutes, budget, operating regulations and scope.
