The programme

Given the apparent polysemy of the term ‘culture’, the areas of work of specialists in the interpretation applied to this term are also broad and diverse, and they all share the vocation of service, of the active provision of culture with a view to its transmission to specific sectors of the population (children, elderly, professionals, etc.) or citizens as a whole.

  • Conservation, promotion and planning of cultural heritage.

  • Design and coordination of exhibitions in museums and art galleries.
  • Advice and management of companies or public bodies related to culture.
  • Promotion and management of tourism-oriented cultural resources.
