Culturenet.hr, a project initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and the Open Society Institute-Croatia aims at pooling available information resources on Croatian culture (organizations, associations, institutions, projects, etc.), encouraging their elaboration and enabling cultural workers to find in one place information of interest to them as well as partners for their projects. The project CultureNet is thus geared at promoting cultural co-operation in Croatia and co-operation with foreign countries as well as contributing to enhanced co-operation between Croatian cultural institutions, between institutions and artists and all of them with the broader cultural public.
As a joint cultural project, the Culturenet.hr portal was accessible on the web from August 2001 do 31 March 2004. Since April 2004 the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia has continued to maintain and develop the project within the regular activities of the Administration for Cultural Development and Cultural Policy - Department for Planning Cultural Development.
The portal aims at pooling all the cultural resources in Croatia, public and private, profit and non-profit, "mainstream" and alternative.
Culturenet.hr is member of the network INSEECP
