WorldCP profile for Chile a first for Latin America


We are delighted to announce the publication of the WorldCP profile for Chile, the first ever compilation and analysis of the cultural policies of Chile, and  also the first WorldCP profile to be developed in Latin America.....

Written by Simón Palominos Mandiola, the profile was officially launched by IFACCA’s Executive Director, Sarah Gardner, at the General Assembly in Santiago de Chile on 13 January 2014.
We would like to congratulate Mr Palominos on this important research.
As for all WorldCP profiles, the report covers eight key areas of cultural policy:
• Historical perspective: cultural policies and instruments
• General objectives and principles of cultural policy
• Competence, decision-making and administration
• Current issues in cultural policy development and debate
• Main legal provisions in the cultural field
• Financing of culture
• Public institutions in cultural infrastructure
• Promoting creativity and participation

This structure mirrors exactly that developed over 15 years by ERICarts and the Council of Europe in creating the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends in Europe. The Compendium team has been fundamental in the development of the WorldCP project and we thank them for their ongoing support and guidance.
