Secretary of State for Culture of São Paulo
Established since 2006, the "ProAC" is a mechanism to support the cultural sector, whose objectives, among others, focus on supporting and sponsoring the renovation, exchange, dissemination and artistic and cultural production in the state; and support research and cultural education projects, as well as cultural diversity. To receive such support, there are two implementation mechanisms: through edicts and contests or Tax Incentive - ICMS (through sponsorship enabled the ICMS taxpayers).
In 2009 the Cidade Invertida project received cultural merit by the Ministry of Culture to exercise for one year in conducting educational training courses in photography for educators and community workers from nongovernmental organizations.
With sponsorship from ArcelorMittal and AES Eletropaulo companies were conducted four courses, load of 24 hours each, in three institutions: "Programa Comunitário da Reconciliação", "Casa de Cultura Eletropaulo" - at Vila Guacuri and "Escola de Artes César Antônio Salvi" in Osasco City. During the courses, the 48 educators from various disciplines were instructed and authorized to use the picture in the educational children's education, adapting the learning to their areas of expertise.
