The key is to know these processes in depth, and to be able to apply the legislation that is relevant to protect and properly manage the project. Even within the same industry each branch has its own logic.

These are some of the creative universes that this blog deals with:

  1. Music
  2. Design
  3. Arts
  4. Plays
  5. Live entertainment
  6. Literature and editorial
  7. Films

It is a bit of everything; And the specialty is urgent in these times. Everything to flavor things.

Discussing the right tools to understand the arts is vital to claiming them; To connect them with other disciplines. Art, culture, entertainment-whatever they may call it-needs to be separated from mere philanthropy and leisure. Entertainment is a growing industry and with increasing participation in the economy (including the Colombian).
