Under Rouen’s law, as explained by Ficcioli, “The artist asks for money, for example, to put together an album. In the project, he determines the hourly cost of the sound technician, the rent of the studio, the photographer … He submits three budgets. The government approves the amount, authorizes companies to ask for donations, which are deducted from income tax.
The relevant law, formally known as the “Culture Stimulation Act” and which has been in effect since 1991, is “The main tool for promoting culture in Brazil”.
