The Constitution and Justice Commission of the Legislative Assembly of Paraná (Alep) approved, on Tuesday (3), the Project 299/2021, which reduces bureaucracy in access to public lines of financing for professionals in the cultural area, whose activities are being severely affected by the pandemic.

The project, presented by state deputy Tadeu Veneri (PT), will be analyzed by the Culture Committee before being voted on in plenary. “We want to minimize the effects of almost two years of unemployment for our artists”, justified Veneri.
The proposal simplifies the process for obtaining public resources destined to finance culture, including the authorization to receive funds from the Aldir Blanc Law. The presentation of the proposal responds to a request from the Frente Movimento, which fights for artists’ access to rights to continue working.

Paraná is the third state that released the least funds for the artistic class, with only 15.095%, just ahead of Mato Grosso do Sul, which executed 14.9%, and Goiás, which executed 9.83% of the funds received.
Under the bill, the State of Paraná is prohibited from retaining discounts on payment of amounts from public notices and prizes in the area of culture or funds for emergency aid authorized by law to offset any debts of artists to the State.
The requirement by the State of any debt clearance certificate with the federal, state or municipal public authorities is also prohibited.
