General

General information about the Culturemondo network.

Professional Directory

Culturemondo uses LinkedIn as its directory of cultural portal specialists; the database for its network members.

To add your name to the directory simply create a free profile for yourself in LinkedIn and add 'Member of Culturemondo' to your list of current jobs.

The more detail you put into your profile the better and remember to make your profile public.

Your profile will then be available for others in the network to read.

As the network grows and people within it get to know each other, you can begin to link to other Culturemondo members.

Email List

Culturemondo uses a public Google group to share and exchange information, questions, solutions, research and more.

Joining the group is simple, free and open to anyone who is working for a cultural portal or has expertise in this area. To join the email list please go to the Google group homepage and subscribe.

Meetings

Our Roundtable meetings are lively and informative meetings where we can discuss the issues facing us as professionals in online cultural portals. For many of our members, attending one of these meetings was their introduction to Culturemondo.

Since 2004 we have held five international face-to-face meetings (roundtables in Japan, Croatia, Cuba, Taiwan and New Zealand), with participants from over 45 countries and 70 cultural portals.

The first Culturemondo meeting took place in Brighton, UK in December 2004 where an International Steering Committee was formed with representatives from Culture.ca (Canada), Kultur.nu (Sweden), Cultuurnet.be (Belgium), culture24.org.uk (previously 24 Hour Museum, UK), Collectionsaustralia.net (Australia) and Culture.fr (France). Other members have since joined the committee from Taiwan, Croatia, Cuba, Mexico and The Netherlands.

The next meeting is due to take place in Septemebr 2010 in Amsterdam as part of the PICNIC festival.
