• Activate the Magalhães Center, to support ICC's
• Detect, select and support Digital Art entrepreneurs, and support services
• Stimulate and develop networking at regional and inter-regional level
• Organize cross-border events
A cross-border project, also involving the Alentejo region, and supported by the POCTEP programme, aims to promote the development of creative and entrepreneurial initiatives in the area of Culture.
One of its Centers will be created at Museu Zer0, through which the emergence of artistic creation projects and support services for digital art in the Algarve region will be encouraged. Entrepreneurial initiatives will be hosted in this space, which will benefit from reception and incubation areas, equipped with equipment for artistic creation and presentation.
Museu Zer0 will also provide specialized technical assistance, and will carry out various activities to present these projects, as well as inter-regional and cross-border cooperation.
In this way, Museu Zer0 will also be a space for the creation, presentation and exchange of knowledge, skills and creative processes, specially designed for the emergence of new companies, based on cross-border cooperation.
Through a very close relationship with Algarve companies in the area of information technologies, and cultural associations, the ILC-Museu Zer0 will promote close contacts between these entities with artists and entrepreneurs supported in the field of digital creative areas, in order to encourage crossovers of opportunities , both in the use of new technologies in artistic production, as in the creation of content solutions and other sub-projects.
As stated in its work plan and budget, the ILC-Museu Zer0 will have the support of experts in mentoring and encourage entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative industries, not only for individual support, but also to create opportunities for collaboration at the level regional and cross-border.
These advisory services will be both curatorial (encouraging and supporting artistic creation) and formulating future business scenarios for artists, creators and technologists, encouraging them to formulate scenarios for their future sustainability in the contemporary art market.
Therefore, the ILC-Museu Zer0 will also organize training workshops and seminars, especially dedicated to artists and creatives, especially in the areas of competence related to digital contemporary art, actively participating in the exhibitions, fairs and congresses that are organized by the other partners, in order to link the creative and entrepreneurial initiatives of artists in digital art with other companies, dealers and the general public.
To this end, it will welcome, whenever possible and within the domains of digital art, researchers, artists, creatives and producers in digital art, also making available to the other partners of the Magalhães project their contacts, both in Portugal and in the Andalusian region.
