Secretary of Culture since 2009, and former Congressman and Chair of the Committee on Culture of the House, Jorge Coscia is a recognized filmmaker, writer, and former President of the National Institute of Film and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA).
Coscia will present the cultural challenges facing Latin American democracies as they expand social and cultural inclusion. To build a more just and equal vibrant democracy requires opportunities and platforms for a plurality of voices and the development of a citizenry with the capacity to critically participate. Experiences in the expansion of the cultural horizon in neighborhoods will be presented.
