The Municipal Secretariat for Culture published two public notices for project submissions last July. Continuing the cultural policy already established in the city, the intention is to supply two major events that will take place in the coming months. Descentra 2021 aims at valuing artistic and cultural expression in the most diverse regions of Belo Horizonte, and the Praça da Estação 2021 Cultural Zone intents to recognize and enhance artistic and cultural activities within the traditional central region of the capital city. Together, the two public notices will inject more than 2 million Reais into Belo Horizonte’s cultural sector - 30% more than that earmarked in 2019, adding to the various initiatives that have been carried out by the City Hall in contributing to the resumption of one of the sectors hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
