It’s struggling, both globally and locally.
If you want to help keep Portuguese culture alive, here’s a winded but coherent call to action:
“Since April 2020, the Civic Platform Convergence for Culture has been alerting the Government to the problems inherent in the Portuguese Classification of Professions and the CAE and CIRS of the Cultural sector: because of them, the successive announcements of support by the Ministry of Culture, already insufficient and questionable, die in the web of bureaucracy and continue to leave thousands of Portuguese behind.
When the European bazooka would allow essential leverage for the sector, the Government continues to ignore the recommendations of the European Parliament and the European Commissioner for Culture, depriving the sector of truly extraordinary measures and at least 280 million euros through the Recovery and Resilience Plan.
This allocation of 2% of the RRP to the sector, in accordance with European recommendations, could contribute to truly mitigate the enormous problems of the social fabric of Culture and, at the same time, project the future.
It is therefore essential to denounce the Portuguese Government before the European partners.
Convergence for Culture calls upon the cultural sector and civil society to gather at Praça do Império, in front of the CCB, on the 17th of May 2021, at 15h00, during the Council of Ministers of Culture of the European Union.
This concentration has as purpose the delivery of a critical document, elucidative of the Portuguese Government’s actions regarding the Cultural sector during the pandemic.
Who are we?
How many are we?
How much are we worth?
We invite all formal and informal organizations to unite!”
Fight the power.
