What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

"During these last weeks we have witnessed how people have sought refuge, and one way to cope with this situation is through reading, watching audiovisual content, listening to music, or practicing some cultural and artistic discipline. I think that in some way the digital offer has contributed to reverting the image of culture as something decorative, luxury or elite. It has alleviated confinement and contributed to mental health, we could say that culture has been a cushion of mental protection". These are the words of Consuelo Valdes, Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage.

For this reason, since the pandemic was declared, MINCAP has promoted a wide range of digital sites. "At the same time that our museums, archives, libraries and cultural spaces were closed, we launched the #EligeCulturaEnCasa initiative, with the aim of facilitating citizen access to the digital offerings of the ministry and other collaborating spaces and entities. The Choose Culture platform, which hosts this campaign, was reinvented to disseminate content that allowed art and culture to be experienced digitally, through virtual tours of museums, online art collections, documentaries, etc. We are very happy with the results; from March to June the platform has reached more than 363 thousand visits", says the minister. Likewise, the MINCAP audiovisual content dissemination site, Onda Media, also reports on the good reception it has had by the public: since mid-March to date, more than 1,200,000 film viewings have been registered and more than 160,000 downloads of the application for smartphones. A significant increase is also what the Digital Public Library has shown in this same period, both in the number of subscribers, which registers 25% more than last year, and in loans (44% more than the same date in 2019) and Bookings. The same concerning the download of titles, whose current amount available exceeds 17 thousand works.
