The expression « Kirata » is a distortion of the English “curator” which designates the exhibition commissioner. In the jargon of Congolese artists, it refers to a cultural operator whose role is to support visual artists in their creative process, to put their artworks in context, and to gather resources for the organization of exhibitions. By relying on information and communication technologies, the project intends to support the emergence of the first generation of Congolese exhibition commissioner benefiting from critical, entrepreneurial, technical and social analysis tools, for better cultural mediation with local audiences but also for the economic development of visual arts sector in Democratic Republic of Congo.
