About the cycle

In the past period marked by the epidemic of Covid-19, the place of realisation of cultural needs of the audience was displaced into the digital sphere, due to temporary closing down of venues used by cultural institutions and organisations and ceasing of their regular programmes. This encouraged designing new ways of presenting archives and collections, concerts and plays, and also the organisation of people they are gathering.

Although the Internet cannot fully replace performing cultural and artistic programmes in a physical space, it can be an opportunity to perceive the importance of one’s own work in a different way and to further contemplate the spots of positioning on the cultural map of the city, region and Europe.

Therefore, the cycle of online presentations “Cultural programmes in digital space” is precisely related to improving the visibility of our institutions and organisations in the digital space by designing new formats of presenting cultural and artistic creativity and communication with the audience..
