The governing council gave the green light this Monday
Strategic Planning Instrument 2022-2024 presented by the Ministry of Culture and Finance to definitively consolidate the
Canary Institute for Cultural Development (ICDC) as a solid cultural management tool in the Canary Islands.
This action, which makes it possible, among other things, to hire staff on an indefinite basis, is part of the
organizational restructuring undertaken in this public company in 2019.

new organization chart in the company based on the creation of six large programming areas that attend, transversally, to as many lines of work. All this with the aim of covering each and every one of the artistic disciplines in the cultural field, that is,
Music, Canary Islands Film (Audiovisual), Plastic and Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Book and Promotion of Reading and Cultural Heritage.
This action is the last step in a transformation process that will allow the continued provision of public support aimed at guaranteeing the
sustaining the cultural environment and preserving the continuity of cultural activity in our archipelago.
