With the aim of leaving an installed infrastructure in various territories and creating an ecosystem that could meet the needs of cultural enterprises, the Ministry of Culture decided in 2014 to implement its training strategy in the initially prioritized areas (Manizales, Barranquilla and Buenaventura). This process is focused on capacity building in cultural management and entrepreneurship, geared towards the identification of institutions, agents and ventures that received a first transfer of knowledge represented in methodologies and instruments for the management and sustainability of the cultural and creative industries.
During 2016, a proposal was implemented that combined the training and coordination lines. During 2017 and 2018 coverage was expanded to a total of 11 municipalities in the country (Manizales, Barranquilla, Buenaventura, Pasto, Cartagena, Ibague, Bucaramanga, Cucuta, San Andres Islas, Pereira and Aburra Sur), focusing on actions specifically in the policy lines of Inter-institutional Articulation and Local Circulation.
Currently and in accordance with the provisions of the National Development Plan "A Pact for Colombia - A Pact for Equity" 2019 - 2022, the Node Strategy is found in the Pact for the protection and promotion of our culture and development of the orange economy, which has, among others, the objective of generating conditions for the creation, circulation and access to culture in the territories. (National Development Plan "A Pact for Colombia - A Pact for Equity", p. 659-660).
Under this framework, the Node Strategy is currently reconfigured as a regionalization scheme that mainly seeks the decentralization of the guidelines of the Integral Policy for the Creative Economy - Orange Policy, through the formation of networks of local institutions, agents, organizations and cultural industries in such a way as to promote the development of sustainable ecosystems of the creative and cultural economy at the local level.
The Nodes are based on the consolidation of Orange Economy ecosystems in the regions and seek to articulate the efforts of the institutions in the field of public policy with the programs and activities of the business world, this with the aim of contributing effectively to the promotion, strengthening and capacity development in infrastructure, business, access to financing instruments and human capital.
The consolidation of theses Nodes encourages effective governance, with robust structures and procedures that allow the implementation of joint actions. The coming together of the private and public sectors facilitates the collaboration of the agents of the Orange Economy with other economic sectors, their activities and the technological capacities existing in the region, as well as the opportunities offered by the market.
