Gibraltar Cultural Services launches new website with an eye on community
The Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, has launched a revamped website - www.culture.gi.
The website seeks to encourage and support as much interaction as possible between the community and the department.
It includes information on all aspects of events and facilities that are run by GCS and aims to promote, encourage and foster the arts and cultural activities locally, as well as serve to export Gibraltar’s culture abroad.
“Our intention is to have a website that reflects our work, our artistic character and represents the cultural haven and cultural hub that exists in Gibraltar,” said Seamus Byrne, the chief executive of GCS.
“For this we have taken a modern and creative approach to the site, its content and its structure.”
The website includes a Home Page with user-friendly icons, a calendar of events, cultural news, event photographs, the cultural venues that fall under the management of GCS as well as an extended list of cultural organisations.
The website also has a special feature ‘Art Heritage’ that provides biographies and artwork samples pertaining to renowned late artists from our community.
GCS hopes to keep improving the website even more as time progresses and urges the public to visit and browse the new website, and to make suggestions for future content.
The website will serve as a portal that will support all Government-run cultural activities and events, as well as those that have Government support or funding through its organised festivals.
The website will also have a direct link to the Visit Gibraltar, Miss Gibraltar, Mayor of Gibraltar and CultureTV websites, in addition to social media accounts for GCS.
“This website provides a wealth of useful information on Cultural activities and facilities in Gibraltar,” said Dr John Cortes, the Minister for Culture.
“It adds to the already considerable online presence and personality of cultural Gibraltar, which has developed so much during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
“I congratulate all those involved and thoroughly recommend it as a resource to the many thousands of Gibraltarians for whom culture is such an important part of our lives.”
