Creative Austria - Contemporary culture
Undiscovered and promising happenings from the contemporary cultural and creative scene
Special: AUSTRIAS ONLINE-GUIDE FOR ART & DESIGN
CREATIVE AUSTRIA presents its new channel “CREATIVE ONLINE – Austria’s online guide to art and culture on the net”.
The ideas on the net sprout. The cultural and creative people have necessarily moved their work to the net. Many cultural institutions and cultural media also have true online treasures in their video, image or podcast archives. Now is the time to deal with them.
CREATIVE AUSTRIA has created a new channel on the homepage for this purpose: “CREATIVE ONLINE – Austria’s online guide to art and culture on the net” offers a broad overview of Austrian film, literature, music and art and culture offerings that can be viewed and accessed from home. And new ones are constantly being added. Podcasts, lecture series, archives of various kinds can be found there as well as the online channels of the Austrian Community TV and radio stations with their largely unknown online treasures and, of course, the online cultural offerings of the ORF.
An exceptionally diverse contemporary cultural and creative scene has developed in cities in Vorarlberg and elsewhere in Austria. Yet far from larger urban centres, a vibrant cultural scene and a creative atmosphere also exists, which exhibits surprising and impressive variety.
Innovation and design know-how unite to form a building culture, tradition and innovation go hand in hand, and old handicraft principles meet new designs as traditional timber construction is further developed into modern architecture.
Under the project umbrella CREATIVE AUSTRIA, Austrian cultural cities, regions and other partners have joined forces to draw attention to today’s cultural and creative offerings. The result: a dense worldwide network of partners.
CREATIVE AUSTRIA INTERNATIONAL regularly reports e.g. on international projects by young Austrian creative personalities that take place worldwide in cooperation with the Austrian Cultural Forums.
