Culture is primordial to create the identity of each person, well as to understand the importance of each person in society, therefore culture is important to the society development. Culture is a human right, this is positivesed in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural rights (1966), Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and in the Brazilian Constitution (1988). In order to allow the right to culture practice emerge the Public Cultural Policies, which have a progressive historical trajectory and it has been gaining more importance. Recently the project, which creates the National System of Culture, was approved. It aims to foster and strengthen cultural policies in all spheres of the Union.
