National Culture Directorate
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The consultation process to design the National Culture Plan tried to generate a tool that contributes to the design of policies, long-term cultural issues, to think of cultural politics in a way that is transversal to public policies, establishing objectives, guidelines, priorities and mechanisms for work in the culture sector that allow optimizing actions and resources.

The consultation process included 18 instances of dialogue in each department of Uruguay, and in the capital city -Montevideo- there were dialogues with each creative sector of the national creative industries and from communitary culture.

A synthesis of the systematization of the process of the National Plan of Culture was presented. This was meant as a general framework to think and to design cultural public policies in the medium and long term, so as to optimize the sector regarding resources, actions and the results achievements.

Three transversal axes and three axes of action that articulate the Plan were proposed:
Transversal axes: 1.Culture as a human right, 2. Cultural Governance structure, 3. Digital Culture. Action axes: 1. Symbolic expression, arts and creativity, 2. Cultural Citizenship, 3. Economic Development.

The elaboration of the systematization of the Plan process incorporates what has been developed in previous administrations as well as the results of the consultation process to the citizens in the year 2016, the Culture Law project; the Iberoamerican Cultural Letter; and the Sustainable Development Goals. On these bases it is proposed a synthesis to achieve a National Plan for Culture 2030.
