Semanology: Arts and public policy

This text concerns the opposition by the artistic community to the results of the contest to support the arts by the General Directorate of Arts of the Ministry of Culture, an issue that falls under the design, implementation and evaluation of public policies.

Public policies correspond to the action of the State in order to fulfill its mission. It is up to the rulers to interpret, define and act for this purpose. In democracy, there are clear benchmarks for this effect: the electoral programs of the parties, government programs, parliamentary control and the judgment made by voters on the performance of those in charge. Support for the arts by the State (which must be combined with private support) is not the central theme of media agendas, organized essentially in the face of the immediate.
