The STAGE platform provides a simple application by means of which elderly users can choose the live performance or events’ package they want to access through common digital devices like tablets, smartphones, smart TVs or computers. The new service will be offered through streaming technology by a network of European and worldwide cultural stakeholders and providers. It will offer a new way of benefiting from cultural resources worldwide and reaching a wide and almost unexploited group of consumers. Social involvement of end-users will be ensured through an integrated dedicated social network, which will allow elderly people to exchange comments about the cultural events as well as e-Learning tools including training and support guidance and information about the events (i.e. historical background, cultural context). STAGE promotes a proactive participation of the elderly, aiming to increase their access and interest in new cultural knowledge from the events as well as contribute via e-learning to their digital education.
The STAGE project aims to provide elderly people with an easy and affordable online access to live cultural events (i.e. theatre, operas, museums) worldwide.
