Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
IBERMUSICAS is a cooperation program dedicated exclusively to the music sector of Iberoamerican countries. It aims to create a permanent interaction between musicians, music producers, and curators of Iberoamerican festivals. To this end, the Program organizes public notices aiming: 1) the promotion of the mobility of artists, including artistic residencies; 2) the training of musicians; 3) awards for Iberoamerican musicians’ compositions. Fourteen countries participate in the IBERMUSICAS program.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?:
Mobility and Exchange of Musicians: The Program promoted mobility and exchange between musicians from member states and provided opportunities for Brazilian artists to tour in the following countries: Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Spain, Mexico, and Portugal. The Program also encouraged the creation of new Brazilian musical productions and promoted its international diffusion. As an example, the Brazilian Sérgio Lacerda was contemplated in a public notice for the Ibermúsicas Program and later he was launched in Mexico City. His work was executed by the Center for Experimentation and Production of Contemporary Music in Mexico (Cepromusic). In addition to taking Brazilian Music to other countries, the Program allows a great exchange between Iberoamerican musical groups. In 2019, for example, CEPROMUSIC of Mexico made presentations in Brazil, thanks to the resources received by the Ibermúsicas Program.
