Accessing to Port City Culture during the quarantine

 Culture and identity 

Parallel to the health and economic measures, port city actors are developing cultural and educational initiatives to bring port city culture closer to those in quarantine, particularly children. Last week we saw the work from Trieste, Barcelona, Tarragona and Livorno. This week, Puertos del Estado released a colouring book about ports, similar to the one AIVP published entitle “Port Cities”. The Port Center of Le Havre has also gathered online resources to bring the people closer to the port from their living room, including serious games or video content. In a similar way, the Port City Futures project from Leiden, TU Delft and Rotterdam Erasmus universities has compiled books, films and documentaries to experience port city culture from home (source). Other AIVP members like La Marina de Valencia, is also sharing online content, including the concerts from last season in La Pérgola . AIVP YouTube channel also include entertainment about port cities, including the AIVP Doc(k) videos with several experts. Following the same idea, our partner the “foundation Sefacil” is publishing for free one book per week about their research.
