About Us:

1. What is Agora?

Culture Agora, hereinafter “Agora”, is a free-access platform, free for the user, serving a double purpose:

  • facilitate the visibility professional content related to culture, and in more general terms, to cultural and creative industries: training, financing, employment opportunities, as well as partnership search and crowfunding.
  • contribute to the maximum dissemination of audio-visual content (streaming and video) already hosted in other websites which can be of interest for cultural industries professionals and for a larger public interested in culture and the arts, with a particular focus on the streaming of  events and face-to-face meetings.

The contents published in Agora, with few exceptions, have their origins in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean 

 

2. Our goal

Agora is a participatory tool with wiki structure, which aims to simplify, benchmark and highlight in a single digital platform a wide range of cultural content which is now currently scattered in the network, providing the maximum dissemination capacity to its promoters, and facilitating the search to interested users through simple filtering mechanisms.

In Agora everyone has the same opportunities to become known: the symposium or the training offered by a venerable institution in a big city, or a meeting or job offered by a small and dynamic cultural organization.

 

3. Which type of contents and formats are published?

In Agora you can find content related to the arts and to creative industries, and the basic information allowing a user to find it and to access the promoter’s website containing all the necessary details.

 Agora’s content may fit in one of these five categories:

  • Events or meetings of short duration (congress, workshop, conference, festival)
  • Training and education of any kind (postgraduate, master, specialization course, online courses)
  • Awards and Grants (from a public or private origin)
  • Job offers (paid or unpaid, permanent or seasonal)
  • Partnerships and crowd funding searches 

These categories can be related to more than 40 disciplines, of which you can identify several at a time, to obtain more precise search results. 

 

4. Who can access Agora?

The information content of Agora is accessible freely from anywhere in the world.It is primarily targeted to people who are directly interested in any creative or artistic discipline: professionals and students, as well as organizations promoting or hosting cultural activities.

Agora’s audio-visual content is also intended to a wider audience interested in culture but not necessarily professionals: arts , literature or cinema lovers, etc. ...

 

5. Who can publish content?

Any company, association or organization wishing to give visibility to an offer, a training course, an event in any of the possible sections on the platform, can register freely in Agora and publish such content, as far as it respects the Terms and Conditions. The only requirement, in addition to the need for the content to be appropriate to Agora’s nature, is that such content intended for publication must already be in some other website, which the user may access for further details, registration, etc.

Agora also spreads, but does not host on its server, audio-visual content, which must have its own platform for diffusion: one of its own platform, or any of the most popular ones (YouTube, Vimeo, etc...). 

 

6. How can content be published?

Companies, associations or organizations of any sort who want to publish content in Agora need to register once as promoters [in the following form]. When they receive a username and password to access the system, they can complete the data to publish information at their discretion, upon acceptance of the Terms and Conditions document.

On request, promoters approved by Agora will receive access codes allowing them to freely upload content at any time. In all other cases, the content is subject to a prior reviewing process, which should not exceed 24 or 48 hours.

 

7. Is it free?

Access to content in Agora is and will be free to the user in any case. But Agora reserves the right to change this policy in the future for content representing a profit for the promoter, as well as when special editorial support may be offered for dissemination in social networks.

 

8. How long will the content stay public?

Agora does not contain obsolete or expired content: it is a constantly updated platform. The duration of a publication in Agora is determined by the promoter at the moment he/she compulsory sets the final date for the activity or its deadline. This end date implies the disappearance of the publication within 24 hours. If the promoter wants to keep it longer, he/she must renew the publication.

This restriction does not apply to audio-visual content.
