São Vicente: Culture sector will have budget below one percent by 2022 – Minister of Culture

Mindelo, Oct 5 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Culture said in Mindelo that culture will have a budget below one percent by 2022, but will continue to fight for a budget which would justify the weight of the sector in the internationalization of the country.

Abraão Vicente was speaking to the press after presiding over the opening of the 7th International Meeting on Art Education that runs until Wednesday, at the Faculty of Education and Sport (FaED), in São Vicente, with more than 30 national and international researchers.

According to the ruler, the resources are very important, for this reason he has appealed to the various agents that it is not enough just to ask for funds from the Ministry of Culture. It is necessary to be aware about the impact of the State Budget on the definition and scope of the support the ministry grants during the year, he said.

“The Ministry of Culture cannot be only to support, it cannot be just fostering the arts. It has all the structural part linked to research, programming, property maintenance and the construction of infrastructures to support the arts that also has to be valued. But we remain below one percent (%) in the culture sector,” the Minister said.
