Contexto/Resumen

In 2019, Panama took a leap into a new era for its culture sector by transforming the National Institute for Culture into a ministry dedicated to culture. The creation of this new Ministry represents the government’s commitment to ensuring the cultural rights of the people of Panama in order to reduce inequality in the country. The next step is to create strong institutional and programmatic frameworks to enable the Government to harness the potential of cultural and creative industries (CCIs) to achieve the 2030 sustainable development goals.

The project assists Panama in designing measures to develop a consultation body  within the Ministry of Culture that  would be responsible for culture programmes and regulating funding to be made available under “Create in Panama 2030”, a strategic national programme for creative economy for sustainable development. It will also support Panama in conceptualizing a participatory and transparent system of governance for culture.  

The project responds to the following needs and challenges identified by the Ministry of Culture:

  • The multiplicity and dispersion of actors involved in policy-making which complicates the panorama for governance and the definition of priorities;
  • The lack of connection among creative sectors due to a lack of common frame and capacity building;  
  • The lack of public-private sector coordination mechanisms;
  • The need for a mechanism to streamline activities of various entities to foster collaboration and support networks in the CCIs.

Adopting a strategic programme for the creative economy

The project supports the Panamanian government to take steps to adopt a national programme for creative economy and sustainable development, “Create in Panama 2030”, as urged by a National Council composed of the main stakeholders of Panama’s CCIs. The objective of this strategic programme is to facilitate the definition of priorities and foster collaboration and support networks in the CCIs.

Establishing a programmatic and regulatory body for the creative economy

This project also accompanies the Panamanian government to develop a programmatic and regulatory body within the Ministry of Culture to spearhead the implementation of “Create in Panama 2030”. This body will be responsible for developing culture programmes and regulating funding to be made available under the “Create in Panama 2030” programme. Through this project, Panama also wishes to conceptualize a participatory, transparent and evidence-based system of governance for culture.
