Last month Belgian Citadel team has joined forces with the
Department of Culture and Sports and the Municipality of Ghent to develop an
application to help raise awareness about local initiatives in the area of
Culture and Arts.
The outcome of this collaborative work was the creation of
first-of-a-kind Map of Arts App – a simple yet innovative application
that provides up-to-date information on cultural venues and the events they
hold in the city of Ghent. From galleries to museums to studios and training
institutes, Map of Arts App allows users to discover their favourite places in
just one click. Find yours here http://kunstenplan.gent.be/.
“We were lucky to be involved in a Citadel project,” said
Annelies Storms, the vice-mayor of Ghent in charge of Culture, Tourism and
Events, adding that the experience has “led to a very nice collaboration within
the city, between the department of culture and the people that are really
involved in creating apps.” To hear more from Annelies and other people
