The first annual report is being launched at the Teatros del Canal on 3 April 2014 in the Meeting: Impact of New Technologies on the Cultural Sector. It analyses the impact of the internet and the incorporation of new technologies in many areas of the performing arts (production, promotion, staging, distribution, etc.) .
The report features nine opinion pieces that analyse the main technological trends from a highly cross-cutting approach that can be applied to any type of cultural institution. The cross-cutting technological trends analysed this year range from the impact of the new concepts of ‘gamification’, ‘transmedia storytelling’ and ‘crowdfunding’ in the cultural sector to highly topical issues such as cloud culture, how to sell culture over the internet and the role of the social networks in promoting culture, among others.
The second part analyses the incorporation of new technologies into many areas of the performing arts: from production and promotion to distribution and including creation and staging, among others. For this purpose we have identified and studied success stories and cases of good practice at the national and international levels in order to familiarise professionals of the performing arts with the possibilities that new technologies can offer their institutions and the digital trends they will need to bear in mind over the coming years.
This study was based on previous research that was open to any institution and/or company wishing to contribute its experience and present cases of good practice and success stories involving the use of different types of technologies applied to the performing arts. For this purpose they filled in a form that was published on AC/E’s website and sent it in by 15 November 2013.
