In 2011, Promoter launched digitalmeetsculture.net, platform which addresses both professionals and the general public: people working in the arts and cultural heritage sectors, who are interested in the digitisation process and technologies (e.g. museum and library managers, and technology experts), people interested in the creative uses of the digital arts (e.g. artists, photographers, performers, art critics, etc.), people belonging to the educational sector (e.g. teachers, students, vocational trainers) and also general users who want to be informed and up-to-date on these matters.
Digitalmeetsculture.net is an online magazine that provides information, resources and articles about the encounter of the digital technologies with the cultural heritage and the arts. The portal is growing very rapidly and it has already received more than 12,000 visitors per month. All the magazine’s articles are bounced across a wide range of social networks. The platform also provides a useful tool for the dissemination of digital cultural heritage projects: by giving wide visibility to the projects’ activities and achievements, by adding depth to their subjects through interviews and related articles and by offering a repository service for the projects’ results.
