The General Directorate of Cultural Industries and Arts (DGIA), founded in 2012, is the line agency responsible for drafting, coordinating, executing and supervising policies, strategies and actions aimed at stimulating artistic creation and fostering artistic activity in the most diverse fields, as well as promoting the productivity and competitiveness of industries that are directly linked to artistic creation and audiovisual, publishing, phonographic and new media production, as well as the distribution of cultural goods and services that are usually protected by copyright. It functionally depends on the Vice Minister's Office of Cultural Heritage and Cultural Industries (2013 Organization and Roles Regulations - ROF).
The DGIA has 4 Line Directorates: i) Directorate of Audiovisual Art, Phonography and New Media; ii) Directorate of Arts; iii) Directorate of Books and Reading; and iv) Directorate of National Ensembles. It is also the General Directorate in charge of the Grand National Theater (GTN).
The General Directorate has internally organized its work in 9 areas that are transversal to all the line directorates, which have been established in accordance with the guidelines and proposals of international organizations such as UNESCO and OEI, among others. These are: i) incentives and financing; ii) regulatory/institutional framework; iii) information management; iv) cooperation and coordination; v) capacities; vi) markets; vii) audiences; viii) innovation and creativity; and ix) infrastructure. The determination of these areas, in an internal management exercise, aims to increase access to a varied cultural offer and foster the participation of Peruvians in cultural activity, as well as to strengthen the development of the local cultural offer within the country and abroad. This, within the competencies framework of the DGIA in the ROF of the Ministry of Culture.
The General Directorate of Cultural Industries and Arts is a reported initiative because it is the Directorate in charge of making policies for the development of the sector, but it is also the Directorate that allows the creative sector to position itself in the public agenda, making its contributions visible and enhancing its development.

Since its foundation, the General Directorate of Cultural Industries and Arts has carried out programs and strategies, and has evaluated the forms and lines of work designed and implemented towards and for the sector.
Some of the results of these continuous evaluations have led to strategic changes within the General Directorate. For example, having officers exclusively dedicated to information management, who are responsible for systematizing and generating statistical information on the cultural industries and arts sector.
Likewise, the selection of eight areas with the priority to guide the work of the DGIA has allowed for the organization of actions and activities carried out, according to institutional objectives that respond to the existing information on the sector.
