The IBERMUSEOS Program aims to contribute to the articulation of public museum policies in Latin America by promoting sustainable development and regional integration. It was established in the XVII Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, in November 2007 in Santiago de Chile and approved as a Program in the XVIII Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government of San Salvador, in October 2008.
The program aims to strengthening Ibero-American museums in three key areas: promoting the importance of museological heritage; highlighting the need to offer training and ensure the mobility of professionals working at these institutions; and facilitating the production, circulation and exchange of knowledge through knowledge through liaising and creating networks to promote public policies for the sector.
The program acts as an intergovernmental body for the promotion and articulation of public policies to support the museums of the Ibero-American Cultural Space and also provides support for different projects that help integrate, modernize and develop these institutions.
Implementing a program of this magnitude involves many challenges, especially those addressing a diverse and complex mosaic of museum institutions, generating bilingual (Spanish-Portuguese) content, and dealing with different political, economic and social contexts.
Mexico's Annual contribution: $ 60,000 USD per year
