The Role of Cultural Organisations in Promoting Rural Development: A Case Study.


Throughout this article, the need to integrate territorial development models with the innovation potential of cultural activities is identified. Better understanding the evolution of rural areas requires the introduction in the socio-economic analysis of extra-economic variables such as values, behaviors and cultural aspects. The revitalization, research and training services developed by CITEMA, the identification of new audiences with which to interact, are inscribed in this scenario; the design of alternative business models; the creation of cultural value or the economic impact, to name a few examples.
