    I'd love this to happen in the UK - such a fab idea on so many levels. Not only does it support cultural development, it gives access to opportunities and helps to support the often under supported artists and producers. Thanks for sharing. :D

    Sad and true. The answer to the question is No, this would never happen in America. We've been going in the opposite direction for decades. As a culture, we place no value on culture.

    It makes me sad to think about how unlikely it is that we would do this any time in the near future.

    Wow! Imagine if the US partook in this movement. Along with sparking interest in the arts and allowing its citizens to enjoy their country's culture, Brazil is fueling the national art and culture economy. Instead of just handing out money, Brazil is proactively working to stabilize this sector. This progressive way of thinking/giving inspires me to want to visit or even study Brazil's methods.

      Exactly - it's a great way to financially support the arts, while enabling people to enjoy them.
