Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
CIRCULAR, Gestión y Difusión de Proyectos Culturales is a cultural agency interested in the protection of intangible cultural heritage, biocultural heritage, art and culture, ethnic and linguistic diversity culture. The organization uses visual, audiovisual, sound, graphic, web programming platforms, among others, as tools to give voice and form to all these projects, about these themes, looking for them to recreate themselves, but also to find new scenarios. The organization designs projects from an internal and external way, and accompanies projects from the design, to execution or promotion, but also develops jointly with different partners and strategic allies, projects that are inserted in the sociocultural, academic, artistic and cultural sector. The main workforce of the organization are our members, collaborators and allies, their creative capacity to be attentive to the cultural needs of communities and their different ways of conceiving reality with the intention of transforming it. The axes of its works are: Project design, Project management and Dissemination of projects in the areas of Communication and culture, Intangible Cultural Heritage, Biocultural Heritage, Education and recreation, Editorial, Art and Culture.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
1. Generation of sound and audiovisual content for the general public on the aforementioned topics: http://www.circular.org.mx/archivo-audiovisual 2. Editorial coordination of open access, about popular culture: http://www.circular.org.mx/editorial/breviario-mezcalero 3. Impact through national dissemination campaigns on biodiversity issues, as was the case with the AGARED, national network from agaves in México, founded by the National Council of Science and Technology in 2014. This campaign allowed generating a community of more than 10,000 followers in a span of two years on their Facebook page; people close to the agave culture, his production, and the sustainable use of this plant. With this community we have approximation for to know their needs and to link them with the academic, industrial and public sector: https://www.facebook.com/agaredredtematica/ 4. Field research conducted in indigenous areas on official education versus ancestral knowledge, and the impact of new forms of learning carried out in the classroom, which weaken the use of oral tradition as a tool in the transmission of knowledge, as was the case in the project: http://www.circular.org.mx/archivo-sonoro/el-viaje-de-las-palabras 5. Generation and programming of the Interactive Oral Tradition Map platform (MITO, by its acronym in spanish) http://www.circular.org.mx/mito ), which will allow interactive mapping of different manifestations of oral tradition in our country, in formats such as Photography, video, audio and bibliography.
