The document proposes 33 actions through 5 strategic instruments for a comprehensive and sustainable decision and art making process for all stakeholders, through Civil Public-Private Partnerships (PCPPs) that reflect, educate and involve communities in the process of imagination, production and enjoyment of public arts.
