The historical analysis of public policies towards culture in Brazil reveals the country has gone through a process of change in which the perspective of custody, the appreciation of the artist, the reduced fostering to the understanding of culture as an expression of the fine arts were replaced by the notion of the market as a definer of cultural values and languages, as a consequence of the private interest of associating their brands. It is known that the Brazilian left, represented here by the policies of the Labor Party, has brought new ideas into the field of public cultural policies, expanding the concept of culture and translating the perspective of democracy and cultural citizenship into cultural actions. The impact of globalization processes on the cultural field, which now moves international debates and respectability policies among the nations, raises questions about assimilation, hybridism and intercultural relations, among others. The issue of identity in the postmodern world renders the debate on cultural processes a crucial role, and the relationship between the global and local spheres stimulates managers and social movements in the cultural field to implement new actions. These actions, which aim at fostering democracy and diversity, should not be reduced to the access to cultural creation and production, but also be a counterpoint to globalization, making this process less homogenizing and more pluralistic and diverse. This thesis aims at contributing to new insights in the field of public cultural policies by analyzing the implementation of the National Program of Living Culture and the aesthetic experiences experienced by the Living Culture Agents in cultural activities promoted by the Culture Points. Invented Identities - Territoriality in the Networks of Southern Culture Points was based on the relationship between many authors, such as Milton Santos, Paulo Freire, Harvey, Canclini, Bauman, Foucault, Arendt and Dewey. The reports of the youngsters interviewed point out that, beyond the symbolic and artistic expression experienced in the cultural activities, the possibility of cultural actions engaged with community life are the power of exercise and of the desire of the common good.
