Basilicata culture's permanent cultural observatory has been created to carry out a constant and widespread action of cultural mapping.
From here it will be possible to watch and experience places, sites, operators, institutions, projects, activities and events: museums, exhibits, shows, cinemas, theatres, libraries, "cultural factories", community centres, associations...the cultural universe, to be audited and observed in a systematic and continuous way.
Within the many aims of the observatory are encompassed:
- To audit and connect all the workers in the sector: institutions, associations, businesses, both creative and not, professionals
- To recognise the importance of the role cultural policies have to play in promoting data analysis and creating opportunities to examine in depth and get up-to-date information on the new forms of cultural offer in a European perspective
- To promote cultural actions, concerning cooperation and development, designed to set advanced policies and educational opportunities to raise awareness, collective consciousness and enterprising spirit
- To support the institutions and cultural and creative sectors in the innovation of promotion and enhancement processes towards new ways to offer and manage the cultural heritage in the spirit of sustainability.
