Ministry of Culture
It is fair to say that there is a creative intensity in the Ministry of Culture — a restlessness to identify, map and ideally fund the most remote cultural manifestations in Brazil. The policies of Gilberto Gil’s mandate are long-lasting — his popularity with the art community is unanimous. The Ministry of Culture is in constant dialogue with the population and wants artists to define their art policies. All the work the MinC does is impressive and quite moving, though it’s worth adding that a lot more can be done to keep up the interesting discourse and good ideas they have.
