MÉDIAS-CITÉ

Main Missions

Aims

Médias-Cité's goal is to diffuse cultural and artistic practices that are linked to digital media by: - encouraging the circulation of these artistic forms in the region, - developing artistic and cultural venues' competences. - contributing to their networking, notably by encouraging strategies of cooperation and pooling resources, - developing audiences by setting up cultural events in the area that are linked to local professionals. - supporting the emergence of local propositions by the transfer of competences and the making available of digital resources and innovations to the region's artists. Médias-Cité is an association founded in 1988 by cultural, artistic and pedagogical and popular education operators, anxious to find means and ways of functioning to facilitate an equitable access to the usages of contemporary communication and information technologies. Thanks to its artist residencies, the association provides cultural venues with propositions. Through its digital resources platform, it enables the implementation of multimedia projects. Its training and documentation centre enables the transfer of skills and the autonomy of projects initiators. With its solidarity hosting program, it allows not-for-profit actors to exist on the Internet. Thanks to its digital initiative seeding program, it incubates innovative solutions that make tomorrow's projects possible. Its permanent staff travels all over the Aquitaine region in order to encourage the diffusion of multimedia uses (multimedia Thursdays, information days, events support, project engineering etc.). With the help of its national networks, it feeds off its identifications, and re-injects these networks with the entirety of its... interconnections.
