“Access of Young People to Culture in Ibero-America”

Interarts and the Proyecta Cultura network have just released a report entitled “Access of Young People to Culture in Ibero-America: Trends, Obstacles and Experiencies” (Acceso de los jóvenes a la cultura en Iberoamérica: Tendencias, obstáculos y experiencias), which results from a research project undertaken in 12 Ibero-American countries in 2011. Local correspondents in each of the countries under study described the legal and institutional frameworks relevant to the access of young people to culture, identified trends and case studies, and collected testimonials from young people addressing their perception of cultural life. Later on, an editorial team analysed the evidence and prepared the final report. The project was funded by the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development and provides the basis for forthcoming activities in the context of Proyecta Cultura, in which Interarts is involved.

The full report and an executive summary, both in Spanish, are available on the Interarts website.

Interarts is a Spanish private agency with international projects to support the design of cultural policies, contribute to the processes of development through the cultural sector, and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and information in the field of culture.

Proyecta Cultura acts as an international platform for cultural actors from a variety of backgrounds and experiences to come together to develop mechanisms for culture-based management, programs, and projects at a local level.
