The AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report aims to become an annual document of reference that analyses the evolution of digital trends in the cultural sector. Through practical case studies and opinion-Ed articles, it is designed to be a manual for constant reference and consultation for cultural sector professionals wishing to discover the advantages and benefits derived from the use of new technologies.
Each year, the report, coordinated by Javier Celaya of Dosdoce.com, focuses on a specific area of the cultural sector. The first AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report, published in April 2014, analyzed the impact of the Internet in the overall cultural sector, as well as it provided a specific focus on the use of new technologies in the performing arts sector (theatre companies, opera houses, dance companies, etc.).
The 2015 edition of the Annual Report will consist of two parts, like the first. The first part, which is more theoretical, will feature twelve articles by specialists who carry out cross-cutting analyses of the challenges, trends, business models and key aspects to be considered (legal, social, economic, etc.) in order to foster a culture of payment of cultural content on the Internet. The authors include Rodolfo Carpintier, Pepe Cerezo, Joana Sánchez, Marta Rodríguez, Grace Quintanilla (Centro Cultura Digital de México) Hugh Forrest (SXSW), Matthew Caines (The Guardian Professional Cultural Network) and Juan Mateos García (NESTA).
The aim of the upcoming Annual Report is to exchange knowledge by identifying cases of success and good practices all around the world in order to enhance museum professional’s awareness of the possibilities new business models and new technologies can offer their entities and also of the digital trends they will need to bear in mind in the coming years.
The study will include both success stories directly identified by the AC/E team and others generously submitted by collaborators through the form available on their website, from which we will select the most relevant.
AC/E is a government agency that promotes Spanish culture and creative industries, in Spain and abroad.
