Today I have been in London to meet Paul Heritage from People’s Palace Projects to discuss the ‘Points of Contact’ programme. ‘Points of Contact/Pontos de Contato’ is a cultural knowledge exchange programme between Brazil and the UK that is setting up reciprocal learning visits between individuals working within arts organisations, policy makers and funders within the two countries. Paul hopes to influence public policy in the UK by demonstrating the successes of the Brazilian government’s ‘Cultural Points’ programme in which funding supports “what already exists and works legitimately within the community… local bodies, organisations and mechanisms that can be strengthened, improved and continuously evaluated.”
