This literature analyses the tools implemented by Latin American and Caribbean countries to promote the cultural and creative economy, and the government’s willingness to finance public programs in the cultural space.
Through its analyses of budgets, promotion tools, and the perceptions of different decision-makers (both public officials and political authorities) of the management and implementation of relevant policies, this report provides a map of the institutional arrangements and resources associated with the implementation of cultural and creative economy policies in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).
The main findings of the research include a widespread perception that budgets for promoting culture and the creative economy are scant given the multiple needs of the sector, with further details highlighting recommendations with a view to facilitate support for culture and/or the creative economy as well as reducing information gaps.
