Chile/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.4 Direct professional co-operation

The primary landmarks of direct professional cooperation, as well as the regular participation in ministerial meetings at a regional and global level, are the collaboration in the Cultural Information System of Mercosur Culture (SICSUR) and in the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA).

In what concerns the  SICSUR, the above chapters detail the characteristics of that organisation as a space of exchange of information and methodologies. Chile has actively taken part in contributing information that can be used of comparative analysis. In the same way the National Council for Culture and the Arts contributes support to the elaboration of comparative studies in terms of cultural institutionality and legislation.

On the other hand the direct professional collaboration between Chile and the IFACCA is made concrete in the Sixth World Summit on Arts and Culture, which will take place in Santiago in January 2014. An important team of producers, cultural managers and researchers are producing the information, readings, comparative analyses and the management of the of the international meetings with highest quality standards.
