Thus, agents are those responsible for the production and management of cultural and artistic goods and services. This group includes artists and producers/cultural managers. The enablers concentrate two players responsible for the viability of these cultural and artistic goods and services: the government, responsible for the policies and financing of the sector, and the private sector, with contributions of financing and partnership with the government. The diffusers include all players responsible for the distribution and dissemination of cultural and artistic goods and services. Press vehicles, theaters, libraries, cultural devices, points of sale, critics, etc. are in this group. The player named as public includes consumers/beneficiaries of cultural activities.
The first research, Panorama Setorial da Cultura Brasileira 2011-2012 (Sectorial Panorama of Brazilian Culture 2011-2012), investigated the agents and the enablers of the artistic culture in Brazil. The second research, Panorama Setorial da Cultura Brasileira 2012-2013 (Sectorial Panorama of Brazilian Culture 2013-2014), was devoted to consumers of culture, or rather, to the Brazilian population. In this edition, the Sectorial Panorama of the Brazilian Culture 2017-2018, the diffusers were observed, intending to understand their contributions to the sector and to the enjoyment of cultural and artistic goods and services. To close, we intend to have a fourth book of interpretation and analysis to relate all the data that will complete the sectorial overview.
