Department of Culture, Generalitat de Catalunya. The mission of the Department of Culture of the Autonomous Government of Catalonia is to preserve, promote and disseminate all forms of art and culture. The Culture Department is responsible for Government policy on creative industries, cultural heritage, libraries, museums and archives. Our aim is to improve the quality of life for all through cultural activities, to support the pursuit of excellence and creativity in the cultural sector. Innovation and creativity are the core of our strategy. Since 2009, the Department manages the Anella Cultural (Creative Ring), as an experimental service between cultural centers in more than 10 Catalan cities based in broadband technologies and high quality media. This service is promoting sharing of content and co-creation between artists, cultural programmers and citizens.
