In this seminar, Juliana Lopes da Silva will present her research titled "Affirmative Cultural Policy for Diversity in the Brazilian Film Industry", an investigation of the institutionalisation of affirmative action in Brazil's state cultural policy to foster racial and gender diversity and equality in film production. The speaker will share reflections on how and why Brazil's state cultural policy has adopted racial and gender affirmative action into public funding, the research methodology, and some investigation findings. In the talk, she will also present the context of Brazil's state cultural policy agenda approaching concepts of culture, diversity, social participation, regionalisation and democratisation in cultural production.
