Declaration of the Organization of American States 2014

The 4th annual edition of the Organization of American States’ (OAS) Inter-American Meeting took place in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and was concluded on August 13, 2014.


Ministers and senior officials with responsibility for Culture from 23 OAS member countries took part in the two-day meeting, as well as representatives of the private sector, academia, civil society and high-level experts.

[…] “This year’s edition of the OAS gathering ran under the theme “Cultural Interdependence in the Context of Globalization”. […] In the Declaration, the cultural authorities committed to working with partner ministries, the OAS and other concerned institutions to establish the Citadelle Cultural Cooperation Program, which will “offer training opportunities and cultural exchanges for young entrepreneurs working in the area of development of cultural products and services.”
Furthermore, they pledged to “exchange experiences and support public policies that encourage cultural entrepreneurship, the development of systems related to improving the capture of data and measurement of the contribution of culture to the economy, and the design of cultural programs that contribute to the development of local communities with social inclusion and innovation.”

  1. Hello mlapodi,
    Your post is very informative indeed. Entrepreneurship is a famous term for all who want to setup the business. But I was completely unaware from the cultural entrepreneurship. It is really a good initiative taken by the OAS to encourage the Cultural entrepreneurship.
