Project Goal 1: to preserve and add value

to the cultural and artistic heritage
of Taxco de Alarcon, Guerrero by supporting the veteran musicans, drama, and dance teachers in the context of a movie making project with local people as actors, actresses, writers, dancers, directors, screen editors, camerographers etc.

There are very worthy veteran artists in Taxco.
Constantly, they are asked to volunteer for public events,
just so the mayor gives a blue ribbon, but nobody ever pays them.

At the heart of our movie-making project,
are payments to veteran Tasqueñan artists
for their involvement in the artistic direction of our media projects,
and to influence the youth in the creation of commercial art products
in the forms of popular music, dance, and movies.

This article has been revised to explore a practical aspect of the Cultural Fusion project and it's connection to iFOSSF and FOSS. When Alterian, a marketing software company, asked marketing service providers about their top challenges the results were no surprise. The primary five were analytics, data acquisition, database management, lead management and track ROI. Industry leaders seem to agree that the demand is for integrated-single serve solutions and this is leading providers to make strategic alliances.

Telecenters in Pakistan

Submitted by Fouad Bajwa on Fri, 2006-12-15 01:25. :: |

Pakistan is gearing up for a massive and expansive Telecentre movement evolving quietly as a multi-stakeholder initiative. This initiative is neither a one man show nor can it be attributed to a single entity as the movement has been influenced by ICT4D multi-stakeholder contributions towards identifying and realizing where the country stands in terms of its ICT infrastructure, how can this infrastructure be utilized to deliver an efficient model for Telecenters in the country, with of course, support through a fund of Pakistani Rupees 100 Billion under the Universal Service Fund USF available for funding and managing this movement. However, the crown for advocating and initiating the process of Telecentres goes to both the World Bank and Mr. Salman Ansari of SATC (Salman Ansari Technology Consultants) who has completed the final report titled "Telecenters and Community Resource and Information Centers in Pakistan" programme that will be targeting setting up of rural ‘Tele-centers’ in Pakistan under the Universal Service Fund Program.
