Our Projects

Cultural Current

Cultural Current is a series of conferences on Creative and Cultural Industry. These conferences seek to bring together governments, policy-makers, corporate and the public to create awareness about the coming shift to culture- and creative-based economy. Cultural Current is not just a place to get together to discuss ideas, but it also seeks to put those ideas into practice by engaging with policy-makers and governments to bring about sustainable urban development and progress though art and culture. However, the role of culture must go beyond economics. Culture is not focused on the price of things, but on their value. Cultural Current creates a platform to project a voice of reason and lead cities and urban spaces towards a cogent view of the good life beyond mass accumulation, through public-private partnerships on cultural initiatives.

Makers’ Hub is open to anyone interested in making, building, tearing-apart, and creating using human ingenuity and creativity.

Cultural Resource Audit & Mapping

Cultural and Creative Audit and Mapping of Cities is the first step in planning development towards a “future city”. This is a foundational step in City Planning in that it identifies and leverages a community’s cultural and creative resources, strengthens the management of those resourc- es, and integrates those cultural resources across all facets of government planning and decision-making. Cultural Audit and Mapping can be a useful tool for a range of constituencies. For policy-makers, it is a research tool that identifies resources and can illustrate links and trends. Municipal decision-makers and other leaders can use it to inform decisions and better communicate with the public. Similarly, culture and tourism organisations and businesses benefit from a broad set of cultural information that can help to plan and focus their efforts. Providing a publicly accessi- ble version of a Cultural Resource Database can create a “one-stop-shop” for citizens and visitors to discover and explore cultural resources in the community.

3D Archiving of Cultural Products & Heritage

Many heritage sites are remote or under threat and access is restricted. The hazards facing heritage places are numerous: not only fire, but the wear of time and limited conservation funding. Sites are also threatened by human conflict or activity, and broader natural disasters. Many heritage places cannot be expected to last into the coming centuries, but it is not impossible to give them a digital legacy.
