Menu of training tools with the aim of contributing to the professionalization of cultural agents at the federal level. This training is held in different parts of the country, with a weekly format, and caters for creators, managers, producers and cultural entrepreneurs. The proposal includes a menu of workshops, seminars, presentations, shows and free interventions that provide resources for cultural management, public education, cultural accessibility and reading promotion, among other activities. Some of the seminars were Training in Public Cultural Management, Training for Theatre Technicians and Craftspersons (SPOTT Program), and workshops for the promotion of reading.
