Abstract

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cultural sector presents considerable challenges. In particular, the access gap to cultural offerings concerning Socioeconomic Status (SES) could severely worsen. In this context, demand-side, interventionist policies could play a central role in cultural consumption recovery in the months to come. “Cultural Pass” is a public policy implemented in 2018 by the Ministry of Culture of the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires to promote cultural consumption among adolescents between 16 and 19 years old from public secondary schools. It consists of a regular monetary transfer that can be used exclusively to purchase cultural goods and services. Analysis of the uptake and use of this programme, especially for the adolescents from the lowest SES deciles is essential to refine this policy and implement it in new cities across Latin America. The face- to-face enrolment strategy accounts for a high percentage of those enrolled in the programme, and access to the programme by the lowest SES deciles is explained to a greater extent by this strategy.
