The Secretariat of Culture of Bahia (Secult) published this Friday (22) the 26 notices of Paulo Gustavo Bahia (PGBA). Registration for all of these begins next Tuesday (26). The notices will support audiovisual, dance, theater, circus, music, visual arts, literature projects, as well as cultural and Bahian identity events and awards for masters of culture, in an investment of around R$150 million. All notices are available on the Secult website.
Prior to this publication, hearings and consultations were held throughout the state in order to ensure greater diversity in the distribution of resources. The notices include, for example, quotas for 50% black people and 10% indigenous people and reservation of vacancies to cover all territories of identity in the state.

In addition to the quotas, there will also be extra points for projects whose proponents are women, LGBTQIAPN+ people, traditional peoples and communities, people with disabilities, homeless people, young people (up to 29 years old) and elderly people (over 60 years old).
Projects whose audiences are people in and out of penitentiary systems or socio-educational measures, people served by harm reduction actions (CAPS and Corra pro Abraço), projects that deal with intangible heritage, in addition to projects which are expected to take place at points of culture, in cultural spaces in the state (theaters, museums, libraries, etc.), in public schools in the state or in urban social centers.
The Paulo Gustavo Law (LPG) was created as an emergency law to mitigate the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on cultural agents. Bahia was the first state to present and approve the action plan with the Ministry of Culture (MinC) and carried out a series of popular listening sessions, in addition to training courses, in the 27 identity territories to create the notices and address the demands of makers and makers of Bahian culture.
