Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
IberCultura Viva is a program of technical and financial cooperation between countries that articulates and promotes the exchange of experiences of community-based cultural policies among Ibero-American countries, having as reference the Points of Culture of the Cultura Viva National Policy in Brazil. The current IberCultura Viva Program member states are Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. The Program was created to strengthen the community-based cultural policies of the Ibero-American countries and it seeks to support both the government initiatives of the member countries and those developed by community organizations and indigenous peoples in their territories. The support occurs through public calls. In 2018, the 1st IberCultura Viva Mobility public notice was organized, and it awarded three representatives of Culture Points from Brazil. Since August 2018, all the program notices have been published on the IberCultura Viva Map platform: https://mapa.iberculturaviva.org/.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?:
Mobility public notices usually support the participation of representatives of civil society organizations in Latin American Congresses at the Cultura Viva Community, as well as at their preparatory meetings. Among the criteria used for the selection, there are: 1) the organization's trajectory in community cultural actions; 2) the experience articulation process of the community networks; 3) the candidate's profile. In these mobility notices, at least 50% of the selected people must be women. Candidate persons belonging to native peoples and/or who declare themselves to be of African descent also score extra points in the evaluation process. In 2019, 33 people were selected to participate in the caravan of the 4th Latin American Congress of Cultura Viva Community, held in Argentina, May 10th-8th. They received airline tickets, travel insurance, and the event registration fee from the program. The total amount allocated to the IberCultura Viva Mobility public notice in 2019 was US$ 35,000. In 2018, with an amount of US$ 10,000, the IberCultura Viva Mobility public notice selected nine candidates from program member countries to participate in the Preparatory Journey of the 4th Latin American CVC Congress, held in Buenos Aires in November 2019. That same year, 10 scholarships were awarded to candidates selected in the public call for the Postgraduate Course in Community-Based Cultural Policies FLACSO-IberCultura Viva 2018. In 2017, approximately US$ 45,000 in airline tickets were distributed to 52 representatives of organizations interested in participating in the 3rd Latin American Congress of Cultura Viva Community, in Quito (Ecuador), from November 20 to 25. The selected candidates received their tickets, travel insurance, and registration for the congress.
