400 euros for a year
The operations registered until April 30 are distributed among live arts, with 58.5% of the expense; cultural goods in physical support, which represent 30.1% of the total; and products in digital support, with 11.4%.
Regarding the distribution by the size of the population centers, localities with less than 50,000 inhabitants accumulate the bulk of the operations, a total of 371,340; compared to 210,772 in cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants; and 319,424 in provincial capitals.
The Youth Cultural Bonus provides 400 euros for one year to young people who reach the age of majority during this year: young people can benefit from the investment through a prepaid card in which they have one hundred euros for physical products, one hundred euros for digital products and two hundred euros for performing arts.
The Ministry anticipates that this investment will mean “additional support for the cultural sector to recover from the crisis” of around 112 million euros.
