Grants to the theater and circus sectors

INAEM (Instituto Nacional de las Artes Escénicas y de la Música)
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
The beneficiaries of the grants are selected through a public and competitive process. Both calls expressly mention the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions as one of the foundations for their existence. Its express objectives, in addition to those linked to the creation, production and dissemination of the stage, both nationally and internationally, extend to facilitating access to citizens and the creation of new audiences.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 
The presence of the aids to the Theater and Circus that the INAEM announces every year is a fundamental support for the functioning of the sector and to compensate the unequal implantation of the sector's agents in the Spanish territory. The calls for proposals also have a double objective: to promote new creation, artistic mobility and the national character of the projects, circumscribing INAEM's support, in the case of tours, to the representations carried out in Autonomous Communities other than that of the applicant's origin and the circulation of inter-autonomous projects; and, on the other hand, the grants, in the case of festivals and halls, support the inclusion in the program of participants from other territories of Spain, different from that where the subsidized activity is carried out.
Financial resources allocated to the policy/measure in USD: 
They are announced annually. In 2018 and 2019 the amount allocated has been 8,035,528 € in the last two years, and it is expected to maintain the same amount for 2020. In the year 2022, a budget of 9,587,708.10 euros has been assigned for the preservation of the theatrical and circus cultural heritage and its dissemination within the territory of the State and beyond its borders, especially favouring communication between the different regions, the equality of all citizens in the access to cultural services and the creation and consolidation of new audiences.
Partner(s) engaged in the implementation of the measure: 
Has the implementation of the policy/measure been evaluated?: 
If yes, what are the main conclusions/recommendations?: 
To a certain extent, the aid and subsidies granted are monitored, and this is useful to be able to establish a diagnosis and obtain data on the aid requested and granted by each Autonomous Community and/or province, the volume of aid granted for each modality (which makes it possible to know the specific dedications of the performing arts sector), etc. As a recommendation, a more detailed study could be considered of the impact of the aid granted both on each of the territories and for the performing arts sector in general.
