Culture

We have moved our location to the cultural heart of the city of Miami and we are proud to join this impressive community.

1) The cultural action and cultural promotion abroad. Our International cultural policy is an integral part of our foreign policy, hence the desire to consolidate cultural action as its tool, to serve its purpose and general guidelines in accordance with the values of peace, security, cultural diversity, democracy, pluralism and freedom, protection of human rights and cultural rights, alliance of civilizations, gender equality, poverty reduction and sustainable development.

2) The cultural and scientific cooperation, understood as a vehicle for exchange and mutual recognition between societies. Starting from relations among equals “rather than old hierarchical and unequal concepts, scientific and cultural cooperation has become a useful tool for deepening mutual understanding between cultures and societies. Culture, science and technology can open up many paths or become factors of exclusion, of confrontation. A good policy on cultural and scientific cooperation is to build new paths, to facilitate working together, contribute to a better mutual understanding, to provide, ultimately, the basis for a new world order based on shared values, respect for diversity, in the peaceful resolution of conflicts, sustainable management of natural resources, gender balance, respect for human rights, an Alliance of Civilizations.

3) The Cultural Action as a factor in development. Culture as a way to achieve peace, democratization and human development. As the 1998 UNESCO report “Our Creative Diversity: human development refers to the individual who is both the ultimate goal as the principal actor or agent.” (…) But people are not independent atoms; they work together, compete, cooperate, and interact in multiple ways. It is culture that binds one to another and makes possible the development of each person. It also defines the relationship of the person with nature and their environment. No less important is the Declaration of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of 2000. The so called, Culture and Development Strategy, based on article 8 of the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (“Cultural goods and services, as vectors of identity, values and meaning, must not be considered merchandise or consumer goods like any other,”) is displayed in seven lines:
