Through the Secretary of Culture of the State of Ceará (SECULT-CE), registration for the Temporada de Arte Cearense and Living Treasures of Culture of the State of Ceará is still open. The public notices aim to give visibility and promote the culture of Ceará through financial support for the realization of projects.
Eduardo Bruno, Artist-Researcher and Doctoral Candidate in Arts at the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), states that the process of promoting culture through public notices was a leap in relation to the “over-the-counter project”, and explains that in this type of project the artists had to have direct dialogue with the specific culture secretary of the administration, or with specific politicians who had an active mandate to obtain financial support. “Currently, this process with the public notices has made it possible for people from civil society as a whole to have access to the promotion of their projects and this for workers in culture and artists in general is extremely important,” he said. the researcher.
The first public notice for the Temporada de Arte Cearense (TAC) is an action by the Public Network of Cultural Spaces and Equipment of the State of Ceará (RECE), presented by the Secretary of Culture of the State of Ceará (SECULT-CE) and managed by the Dragon Institute of Sea (IDM).

Aires, State Councilor for Performance Culture, Art Educator, Artist and Cultural Producer says that in the current scenario of recession it has been increasingly difficult to make a living from art, and that these public notices currently represent for a large part of the state the possibility of earning money from the production of art. “Each one of these public notices has a different scope, covering everything from training processes to research circulation and development. It is important to emphasize the originality of some notices and their clippings, such as the TAC notice, which has never before had a completely egalitarian process in terms of regarding the number of vacancies and distribution of funds. But it is also important to highlight criticisms of this process, such as the cut of almost 50% in the transfer value in the TAC public notice”, said the counselor.

Even with the opening of these public notices, the artist and cultural producer emphasizes that the public notice policy alone does not cover a large portion of the people who work with art and culture in the state. “The public notices are still processes of extreme exclusion with regard to access to writing methodologies for public notices, with these policies often being accessed only by people with this knowledge. Currently, the cultural scenario in the state is still composed of managers with visions coronelistas, with many who have held their positions for years and continue to maintain excluding formats for a large portion of the population”, she concluded.
The artist-researcher states that the public notices go beyond the democratization of access to public funds for the field of culture. He emphasizes that the promotion of culture, as well as the promotion of education and health are obligations of the state. “We as artists are just providing service and if we are going to think of a technical order to the state, to one of the activities that the state is responsible for before society”, said the doctoral student.
