Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
"Pluralism and diversity in the artistic education" has three basic components. On the one hand, the great respect for the academic freedom of ENSABAP teachers. On the other, the coexistence of traditional arts subjects (Ayacucho's retable, Amazonian textile, traditional ceramics) with modern approaches (sculpture, engraving, painting) and contemporary approaches (integrated arts, interdisciplinary spaces, performing arts seminar, among others) has been promoted. As a result, academic spaces currently coexist with different views and positions towards the arts, which generates a very constructive and democratic ecology. Another factor is the methodology proposed by ENSABAP, based on "Artistic Projects", which allows each student to have a lot of room for decision-making and independence since they choose the techniques, means, references, themes and field of application they want. We believe this is vital for a State and Latin American entity, in terms of the existing plurality and diversity. This is also reflected in the publications, exhibitions and awards granted. This measure/initiative responds to objective 3 of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, which seeks to recognize the complementarity of the economic and cultural aspects of sustainable development. Pluralism and diversity in arts education is primarily a measure/initiative that supports equitable access of vulnerable groups to cultural resources.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?: 
The students of the recent classes show art and art education projects quite different from each other in terms of techniques, media, themes and positions, which is an indicator of the level of the currently existing artistic freedom. Proof of this are the gold and silver medal winners from the most recent classes of the five professional careers, as well as the awards for the interdisciplinary project and research. Their themes are gender, memory, social problems, local identities, among many others
