Our vision

Technology is changing every aspect of our lives. The benefits provided by new digital approaches are having a huge impact on our society. However, one of the greatest business challenges is not about the devices, software or solutions – it is about how we manage the process of cultural change. Many facets of global communications today are influenced by cultural differences. The cultural divide is also dictated by the different technological possibilities available and what users are allowed to use. In Cultural sector, creatives are usually far away by technology because of education, habits or aging of the operators. So we have to be more innovative in our approach, whilst meeting the needs of the user. We need to combine the human and digital elements to communicate across our borders. Technology and culture directly influence each other. As cultures change so does the technology it innovates. But we must not forget how to talk face-to-face and the impact it can have in crossing the cultural divide.

What we do?

We design or redesign software for cultural operator and in particular we:

  • develop/install and maintain software and tools specifically for cultural activities;
  • we make masterclass, seminars, training courses and tutoring for cultural operators in cultural entrepreneurship and for promotion of cultural growth.
