Promotion of Brazilian Music

National Arts Foundation (FUNARTE)
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

Between 2017 and 2019, several actions were taken to promote Brazilian music that involved a large part of the music production chain in general:

Biennial of Music and Citizenship (2017): organization of forum for managers of public and private sociomusical projects, when the shortcomings and difficulties of the sector were discussed, as well as the search for solutions to continue the sociomusical projects.

XXII and XXIII Biennial of Contemporary Brazilian Music (2017 and 2019): The Biennial of Contemporary Brazilian Music is an event focused on classical Brazilian music, which aims to contribute to the international dissemination of works by national composers.

Brazilian Children's Music Seminar (2018): forum for Music Educators, music therapists, musicians, and songwriters for children.

Band panels (2018 and 2019) left important seeds of learning in places that would not have access to this type of course: concentrated classes with such relevant names of music, that in a short time pass a deep knowledge, through a careful pedagogical plan with band workshops and practices.

Funarte Choir Panel (2018): a meeting that aims to promote the sharing of experiences and strengthen the choral movement. It had the participation of conductors of 28 choirs, some of them responsible for more than one choir, representing about 500 singers. During the meeting, thematic debates were held on the social reach of the choir as an instrument of musical practice and citizenship, and the creation of a network for the exchange of information and mutual support.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 
The promotion of cultural exchange between musicians and managers of musical projects from all regions of Brazil enabled the exchange of information and knowledge that could guide public policies of culture for the sector. Also, the improvement of conductors and musicians contributes to the creation and diffusion of new works by Brazilian composers.
