A full life is unfeasible without culture. Because it is necessary for the advancement of any society. Because a territory without culture would be doomed to a community without thought, empty and sad. Because without culture humanity could become extinct. Because consuming culture makes you freer. Because it helps to generate knowledge. Because it takes differences into account. Because culture is a powerful tool for territorial cohesion. Because, increasingly, different studies support that art and culture can have a positive impact on health. Because every day we find more and more tests that demonstrate the importance of culture in the construction of more egalitarian societies.
It is essential to promote an authentic cultural diversity, since we are witnessing cultural impositions in our globalized world, the 10 Sentidos Festival offers in its 13th edition ForCulture. To defend cultural policies and measures crucial to the protection and promotion of all artistic disciplines. To protect and promote the diversity of all cultural expressions.

To ensure broader and more balanced cultural exchanges. To promote respect for cultural plurality at the local, national, and international levels. To highlight the importance of the link between culture and development for all countries. To protect culture as a bearer of identity and values.
